the one with no pictures that I wrote a week and a half ago. go me.

I just came home from the most amazing girls weekend get-a-way in Texas.

Oliver talking is the cutest thing in the world.

Miles knows way more about phonics than I realized.

Husband will be home with us every Monday and Thursday starting next week! ( Tele-commuting: Another reason to love his new job.)

I've had a nice month long break from school and almost forgotten what ambition/drive/motivation to learn new things feels like. So basically I am really happy school starts again soon.

More changes are heading our way and we are doing our best to keep up with this crazy life.

We are well though. Things are busy and many nights we all pass out in a filthy house with bellies full of one shameful fast food or another but we are together and most nights happy about it. I am feeling very subdued writing today. Must be the quiet house or the nostalgia that always hits when I dig into this old blog. I don't miss it the way I used to but think of it often. I am learning that there simply isn't time for all the things you want to do each day...week...month... But that's okay. This is a very short, very intense season in my life and I am doing my best. The people I am closet to appreciate my efforts and I love them for it.

It is a lovely lovely life.

I've missed your posts! I was excited to see a new one up. Oliver's talking is super cute. I believe you when you say Miles is way smart about phonics... he's just smart in general. That is wonderful that Drew will be working for how twice a week! Awesome job. And for you... you are a loving and wonderful person and I hope you know that. You are caring and have such a passion for life that inspires me. Keep truckin' along with school and keep setting and achieving goals =)

Hi M!
I liked this post. Didn't realize you are moving on to a new blog site. I'll have to check it out. You are always such a creative writer. But I know what you mean. . . "short, very intense season." There will be time for other things later! Miss you!
