After nearly two years of being blocked out of this blog (and being too depressed, mad, and lazy to start a new one), I'm finally able to post again! I guess better late than never, but I'm so out of the habit of blogging (and SOOOO lazy about uploading photos from my phone to the computer!). This could take awhile to get back into again. All I know is that I have LOVED going back through old posts and being reminded of funny things the kids have said, little outings I'd forgotten about, etc. I know I'll regret not having made a better effort at documenting the last two years!
In a nutshell, we've moved an hour and a half from our home town (not easy, but getting better), the kids are involved in school and extra-curricular activities (swim team for Jared, piano and voice lessons for Emily, and inline speed skating for Connor), our family has gotten into hiking this year (starting out slow and sticking to some short, easier trails, though we did do one heck of a 6 mile hike a month or so ago, not realizing how difficult the trail was!), I've been nanny-ing for some new friends, Dan's around more often since we now live so close to work, and we are gearing up to FINALLY do some remodeling on the new house! It's a 30 year old house that was a rental for a large chunk of that time, so is pretty beat up.
Now that I know my blog is finally unlocked, I'll have to sit down and put a bit more thought and time into future posts. For now, it's good to be back. :)
