I didn't just have a baby, or go through a major illness, or go through a major life change. I wish I could say I had a really good excuse for not posting in a coon's age, but alas, there is no good reason. I did continue to add books to my finished reading list though...does that count for anything?
We recently got back from a glorious 2 week vacation to Oregon. I just love the Pacific Northwest. I really hope it is in God's plan for me to one day live there, because really? I don't think I could ever get tired of views like this:
Less than a week after returning home, we started another school year. I was excited, Ethan was excited, Aaron was not so much. We are less than a week into the school year and there have already been tears, pouting, whining, complaining, and melting into blobby heaps on the floor at the mere mention of writing. I was still thrilled about school in the 2nd grade, so I really don't understand all of this drama. It could be a very long year if we don't find some way to motivate my oldest child.
Regardless of these issues, we are getting into a routine and personally I am glad to be back to some normalicy in my days. Hopefully I'll be able to share more about my vacation and the goings on around the house with kids, school, and home improvement, too!
