I don't know why this blog has received so little attention from me lately. Or my camera for that matter. It's been a few months with only sporadic posts, and I'm hoping to get things rolling again as best I can.
(And no... this hiatus has not been morning sickness/exhaustion related. Because I'm not pregnant. I've just had a weird few months.)
Ummm... sooo... summer is here?!?! It rained a bunch a few weeks ago and we loved it. Then the sun came out and hasn't gone away for a moment since. The temporary greenness we so enjoyed is now gone, the mountains looking their typical Idaho brown.
And we are roasting.
My kids don't like to run through sprinklers. What's up with that?!
So we got a new inflatable pool. Libby was more entranced with the hose than anything...
"How is it done? What is this thing which spouts water? It's a mystery..."
In a few weeks time, we are packing up and heading east. Husband will be taking a temporary job in Minnesota, while the girls and I continue on to New England, to spend some much needed time with family that we rarely get to see. Two months. I don't know how I'm going to manage as a single mom for that long, considering I spend each afternoon pretty much counting down the hours till Husband gets home and can help me wrangle these little rascals into submission. How do single parents do it?
I won't be totally alone. We'll be staying with Grammie and Grandpa Jack. But I'm getting nervous about how they're going to handle being away from Daddy. Because seriously, he is the best thing in their little world.
And I might miss him a little bit, too...
These girls are growing and changing so much everyday.
Come September, we have zero set plans. A few different options in the works, but for the most part.. we have no idea what the future has in store.
Everyone has a million questions, and all I can say is, "We don't know yet."
It's a strange feeling-- some mixture of excitement and apprehension that I can't really explain. Although I certainly try to focus on the excitement, and not on the unknown.
So over the course of the next few weeks, I finish up all my Bradley classes and attend one more birth (assuming baby doesn't come too fast for me to get there!). Husband finishes up at his job. We pack up the little home we just moved into.
And in between all of that we spend as much time as possible with friends and family here, and as much time as we can splashing in our new oasis in the backyard.
We're in for an adventure.
