Website Problems (That I Hope Are All Over)

Website Problems
Website problems are no fun

To everyone who has tried to access my site over the past few weeks and has failed, I'm sorry.

I've been having the most difficult time getting everything up and running again ever since mid-January when I accidentally deleted everything while trying to switch to a cheaper hosting plan.

Terrible, terrible mistake.

It's been nothing less than a nightmare. I've spent hours on the phone or on chat with a dozen different customer service agents trying to fix each new problem that came up. I spent days procrastinating about fixing the next issue because I just didn't have the time to sit on support for an unknown amount of time. It was all fixed for about two weeks then a new issue came up. And one thing would get fixed only for another one to go haywire.

It was a costly, time-consuming, mind-numbing mistake, and I'm glad it's finally (hopefully) over.

Anyway, I'm thankful that it was eventually fixable. I'm thankful that I now have a real backup. And I'm thankful that in the process of this I was forced to have to find a new design for my site, because I'm liking the new theme a lot (it's not drastically different, but I do have a new homepage which will eventually be really cool).

I'm working on updating blog posts for the past ridiculous amount of weeks that I haven't posted about baby Aria's progress. Once I get that done I'll be sharing about Damien's progress, and eventually Hunter's too.

Here's a little photo teaser of some of the things that have happened in the past few weeks:

Update
Damien (3yr9mo) learned how to ride a two-wheeler

Update
Damien (3yr9mo old) started working through a complete first grade curriculum

Update
I made this cool dot math addition poster

Update
Aria started to crawl (at 4.5 months old)

Update
Aria, at six months, is starting to climb on things and pull herself up to stand

Update
Aria started solids (at six months old)

Update
Hunter (at age 9.5) started going to school, and instead of homeschooling we are doing afterschooling. It's working great!

Update
We built some monkey bars for the kids to develop hand strength (to help with writing and small motor skills), cross patterning, and general upper body strength and fitness.

Update
We added some trapeze bars to those monkey bars for Damien and Aria to build up hand strength on

Update
We started swimming occasionally (mid March), and are getting ready to start this year's "swimming season" where we get in the habit of swimming daily

Update
Aria had her first "real swim" in a big pool and loved it - even though it was a bit chilly. So happy I was lucky enough to be blessed with another "fish baby".

    Are we allowed to post requests? I would love to eventually hear more details about Hunter’s transition to regular school. What does he think of the change? How is he handling the rigid schedules and hordes of kids? He is probably years ahead of other kids in regards to material, so how do you prevent him from getting bored?

    Thanks for keeping this website – it’s inspirational!

    So glad to have you back online! I missed your site so much, I was confused because your twitter feed was still active but you didn’t seem to mention the site being down.

    Anyway, I can’t wait to hear more about the baby but especially more about Damien and Hunter and how they are doing and what you have planned for the three little Doman kids.
