I sincerely apologize for being so distant with this blog!! I really love to share all the exciting things I discover, but I will be the first to admit, I'm still adjusting to the move we made last year.  Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love everything about where we are living, and the school my kids are attending, but the adjustment has been huge as we have changed everything about our lives.

From country living to city, from being 15-20 minutes away from the nearest stores/friends/civilization to being 5 minutes from everything and seconds away from friends. (There are 6 families in our court that we go to church with each week and have kids the same age) I've also started to work a few hours a day, first time since 1998 when we moved back home and decided to start a family.  I could go on and on, but who wants to hear the details?  We moved. I am still adjusting. Period.
