The real reason…

So ok, one of the real reasons (besides laziness) that I haven’t updated this blog is because we are expecting our third baby!  I dropped off the planet in a lot of ways for a little while.  We are very excited to welcome another little girl into our family in January.  (Yes, apparently we only do girls in our family!)  Katie and Rachel are so excited–they can’t wait to have a new baby sister.  Rachel tells me almost every day that she wants her new baby sister now.

And in other news, I am now the parent of a kindergarten daughter.  Where has the time gone?

She started school on her birthday, so it was a big day for us.  She requested gogurts for her “healthy snack” at school.  (Her school doesn’t allow treats for birthdays, but you can bring something healthy.)  So Rachel and I got to see her at school on her first day.  Then, we had a party that night with her grandparents.  And, as soon as the grandparents left, she dissolved into tears.  “It’s my party and I can cry if I want to.”  But who can blame her with a first day of school and a birthday?  Too much fun.  In fact, that’s what she did say, “I had too much fun today!”


Is this thing on?

Hello world. Seriously, has it really been almost four months since I last posted? Why, yes, yes it has. And to think that there are still people out there checking this thing. Especially since I have not been checking it.

Well, I’ll see what I can do to add more posts in the next little while. But, no promises.
