Where are we?

I know I have neglected this blog. Hurricane Sandy really devastated us, and we are still dealing with recovery.

We are home (after being displaced from after hurricane until March of this year.) Our home was repaired using insurance funds and volunteer work for labor from Christian Aid Ministries.

Our home is fully repaired with a new furnace, central air, first floor, fridge, washer and dryer, and more. However after being told we would not have to raise our home, we actually do. We are in the process of applying for grants to raise or knock down and rebuild our home since two contractors feel our home is unraisable (due to its age.)

I lost my business (in home daycare due to hurricane.) I now have one child back (my nephew Kaiden, he is 3.) But I am still down $260 a week from my pre hurricane income. But by the grace of God we are current on all our monthly bills.

We are still homeschooling. We took a break for Aug. & half of Sept., and started again last month. Jason is in high school and Josh is in 5th grade. These pictures are from the first day of school.

In all the hurricane Sandy craziness, we have some exciting news. On July 21st I got remarried.

I wrote last summer about beginning to date my now husband, Jay. Well, we decided that we were meant to be and got married.

Also I am expecting another baby boy due Dec. 18th. We are all very excited. This is me a few weeks ago. Today I am 31 weeks.

I am sure that is enough news for now, but I wanted to share that we are ok, and a few updates.

Anyone still out there?
