Yeah, well, like 4 months away. My bad?!
I blame it on the baby.
Yes, baby #4. Most of you (like the 5 people still reading this) probably know because we are somehow friends on Facebook or in real life (imagine that, real friends?) but for those that don't we're 6 months along with another he or she Mauss. I'm rooting for she. 'Cause I'm so over boys.
Anyway, October November December I was in basic survival mode. Eat, sleep, school, make sure no one died. And then the second trimester hit and life was just as busy (except without the puking) and the blog kinda fell to the back burner. But it kept calling me back. Actually it's more like my mind is going to explode because I have so many thoughts running through it. Thoughts on the whirlwind of the past 1/2 year and everything I have learned/am learning because of it all.
So now I'm back. And I promise I won't stay away for 4 months - mostly because there are going to be too many cute baby pictures that I won't be able to avoid posting.
If you'd like a recap of my time away it goes something like this:
Find out I'm pregnant
Celebrate a couple holidays
Run 4 marathons
Homeschool a first grader and preschooler and do lots of field trips
Finish settling into a new home
Lead some marriage/marriage prep workshops
Grow a baby
Deal with a crazy/intense/super adoable toddler boy
Get away to Maui
Celebrate your husband's 35th birthday
Whew. No wonder I took a nap yesterday. (Oh, actually that was from a gluten reaction. Yup. Last day on vacation we were all hit. Stupid Froyo.) And because I taught the kids how to sort/fold/put away laundry my life has finally freed up enough to come back to the blog-o-sphere. Yay for less laundry!
So I shall leave you with the real reason you come back to visit. A look at the blonde-not-so-babies gracing my days. Because in 4 months time they get all growed up.....
