Still here


It's been awhile, hasn't it?  I never planned to be away so long, but life had other plans for me.  So much has happened in our little family over the last 5 months and a great deal of it I couldn't really document publicly.  It has been all consuming many days and if that's all I'm thinking about, then I've had nothing left to share here.  But I've missed it.  For the two of you that care, I've missed documenting our life and our fun and having an outlet to write when something is on my mind.  So I've decided to give it a go again.  I'm not promising anything, but hope to be around here a little more often.

We have had our fair share of fun this summer, despite some really hard days.  But I'm ready to get back to school (Monday!) and routine and some structure to our day.  I don't feel quite ready, but probably won't until we actually get started and I can get a feel for what it might look like.  These two wonderful kids have kept me on my toes this summer.  We've laughed a lot, played a million games, cried together, prayed like never before and were thankful for each other in a whole new way.  Having a 6 year old and a 4 year old is pretty great I decided.  Mostly.

So that's where we are today.  It is our last day of summer vacation, but feels quite fallish outside.  We don't mind though. We're going to enjoy a lazy day doing what we want, taking it as it comes.
