January in Our Home

We had a fun-filled month here in the Supercinski household this January. We got back into the swing of doing school after having several weeks off around the holidays, though we were consistent with math and phonics lessons. The kids have been enjoying all of their new Christmas gifts, especially the little in-house trampoline my grandparents helped us get them for Christmas. Bud has been keeping very busy building and creating things in his room while listening to books on CD, and Sugar loves to dress up and hates having to change to go out.

I hosted a reunion for one of my latest Bradley classes, and it was so much fun to get to meet all those beautiful babies. I was able to attend my final birth as part of my doula-training requirements, and it was a really great birth, even with pitocin and breaking her water early, she did amazing. I just need to buckle down and write some papers and then I can submit all my work and get certified soon. I don’t intend to help at a so many births, but it something I enjoy doing and hope to continue doing as our family circumstances allow.

I’m thinking about doing just a monthly update and tossing the books in that section, we’ll see how long it lasts. I only read one book this month, but I have a good excuse.
Uncharted by Angela Hunt – this is a Christian fiction book that I cannot remember where I heard it recommended, but I did, so I read it. It was fairly well written, and it tells the story of a group of friends from college that reunite 15 years later. They end up going on a trip to build a school in a remote island, but are shipwrecked along the way. The rest of the story follows the story of Lazarus and the rich man from Luke 16. It was interesting and thought-provoking, and would make an interesting book club selection.

    Wow Rachel! I’m so excited about your doula certification! Way to go! I know working on a certification while living life takes a lot of discipline.
