Big announcement!

Well... The time for our big announcement has come. A big new arrival has been in the works for a few months now. I know some of you were wondering when we were going to take the leap of faith to announce this, and the time has come!!!

I wanted you to be the first ones to know our big news because a change like this is just what we need!!! Are you ready!!?? Have we kept you in suspense long enough?? I am excited to say, the "big news" I'm referring to is our newest delivery!! I've traded my Honda Accord in for a nice used white Suburban!

What did you think I was talking about?? Lol

Paulk bunch update:

Well PT And another steroid injection have been prescribed by my new orthopedist, whom I really like. Luckily he said my condition, although degenerative, should be helped a great deal. Unfortunately, I have to wait a few weeks to see the pain people for the injection and you have to wait to start PT until after the injections.... So I wait.... All the while wishing to be able to do more. We DID just move... Lol

Meanwhile, we're all passing around the upper respiratory stuff. In the process, Aiden and Sophie and I got to meet the new pediatric group who made a great first impression as well. I'm hopeful that the system and the doctors are as good ad they seem to be. Also, I was encouraged by a strong support staff. Hopefully we wont need to lean on them too terribly much, but they were also very nice.

Well, today marks three days as a full time home mom. Though I haven't gotten a true taste of what it will really be like, I am hopeful that the things we put in place this week will help next week go smoothly. We are expecting a ton of "Who moved my cheese" but I think as long as everyone has 'their space' it should still be all right.

Goodnight friends,

Running around...

Well today was filled with a lot of running around. Sophie HAS to get registered for school, so we did that and then I came home and rested while the boys rested. I'm hopeful that the kids at Sophie's new school will be nice to her! She officially starts tomorrow so I'll keep y'all posted. It's exciting to be able to be with the kids so much. Aiden had a blast today with Malcolm. They're six months apart and act like twins. It's incredibly cute to watch.

Valentine's Day is tomorrow and we have something special planned for the school aged kids so I should have a ton of fun running errands after I get Sophie enrolled and started.

Y'all have a nice evening! I'm SO looking forward to going to the back doctor on Wednesday so I'll keep y'all posted on that too.

Have a great week!

Half way there!!!

Well the hard part is over! Leaving behind over three years of a total roller coaster ride for a lifetime of another. With the past behind us, miracles have happened and I know we will grow in love and have a lifetime of ups and downs along the way. The great part is... Now neither of us have to ride be roller coaster alone.

Will update more later... Here's Aiden, my personal tape dispenser!

And Sophie, happy to be starting a future with a role model like Adam. We are truly blessed!!!

The day before moving day...

Today is the day before we move.

Aiden and I are both home resting. Aiden is the youngest of the Paulk Bunch (age 2). Aiden has pneumonia and strep. Someone forgot to tell him that it's moving day tomorrow!

Boxes are piled to the ceiling and rain slowly trickles down from the roof outside. I'm praying that the rain stops long enough for us to load up tomorrow and make the trip 150 miles to the west northwest to central Texas where we can enjoy the togetherness of the family and fruits of our labors for the last few months on our house!

We have a great house! It was built in the 1960's, and though energy efficiency wasn't at the top of their list, we're gradually modernizing and this is going to be a great family home. In fact, it already is!

Stay tuned for before and after pictures! It's amazing what a little paint and elbow grease can accomplish!

Welcome to the Paulk Bunch Blog!

This blog will follow the big new adventure of the Paulk Bunch! We are a blended family living in beautiful central Texas! We were married in December of 2011 and are overjoyed to be joining our two families into one!!! The Dad of four kiddos, Adam, and the Mom to two, Jodi (that's me), are now parents to SIX great kids! So exciting! We hope you will join us on our fun filled journey as a family of EIGHT!
