Where have I been?

To say that life has gotten crazy would be an understatement, however I am back now and working hard!  Our family has been making some pretty amazing changes these past few months!  I can't tell you about all of them just now, or I'd have nothing to talk about for the rest of the month, but I will let you in on it all.

First we moved into a bigger apartment in March, which we so desperately needed!  We had been living in a 945 square foot 2 bedroom apartment which was very small for 5, and overly cluttered with all the stuff you need for 5 people, and for homeschooling, and to entertain a busy toddler!  So we now have a 1300 square foot 3 bedroom apartment and we are all much more comfortable.  We feel like we all have room to breathe now, and when the boys are irritated with one another it's no big deal because they can go to separate rooms. 

Also with the new apartment comes a huge and beautiful city park right next door!  My boys love it, there are mock rock walls, and climbing things, and slides, and swings, and monkey bars, and ladders, and bridges, and grass, and all the things boys need.  I like that it's close, and that instead of the typical sand this park has wood chips which are much easier to LEAVE at the park instead of carrying it home in our shoes, and hair, and clothes.  Of course wood chips also don't resemble a litter box, which means no stray cats leaving their "presents". 

Also since moving we have been more and more making the switch to natural, chemical free products for our home, and eating more organic food.  Since we now live closer to the center of our city we are within 2 miles of a weekly farmer's market, and within the delivery area for a mobile farmers market.  Much of our produce now comes from those two places, and it's grown by people who care about the quality of the food, not about maximizing their profits. 

I am so excited to share with you over the coming month some of our new favorite stores, and products, and to tell you more about the great changes happening in the Birbitt household! :)   Get ready to hear about some great products that you may or may not have heard about before, and keep your eyes open because once I get 100 followers here on this blog, there will be a celebration (and a giveaway). 

For now I will just say that Birbitt thinks changes can be a wonderfully liberating experience, and while they sometimes make life crazy for a time, there is usually something great at the end!  This time the greatness comes in the form of easy access to some wonderful places, and more space to fill with books!
