No promises here, because I am nothing if not inconsistent, but I might be back. As usual, I have nothing and everything to say and not much time in which to say it, but as usual, this won't stop me.
When I last posted to this blog, I had an 8yo and a 5yo. I now have a 9yo and an almost 6yo, who are in 4th grade and kindergarten, respectively (5yo just missed the cutoff last year and hadn't turned 5 in time to start kindergarten). This summer, 5yo went from extremely reluctant swimmer to full-fledged member of the team, swimming in every B meet and two A meets (as a last-minute substitute for sick teammates). 9yo has developed a wide-ranging interest in history, and is now particularly fascinated with Pearl Harbor and Area 51. He's going to start playing the clarinet next month, with his school's instrumental music program.
I am taking a break from classes this fall. I wasn't sure if I could manage my own schoolwork and the boys', so I took a semester off. So that creates a blogging catch-22...I might have some extra time to blog, but without school to complain about, then what do I write about? I expect to figure that out straightaway, so stay tuned.
