I guess I thought I would drop in and say hello. We are enjoying our first days that feel like fall. Most of the people who read this don't live in my region. I know that the west coast didn't necessarily have a hot summer, but we sure did. The whole summer has been HOT, and I'm pretty sure that these days in the 70's we've had this week are the first ones since May. Ahhh...such a welcome change.
Public school has begun again, which means that the neighborhood kids are only outside to play in the afternoons/evenings now. We're doing school as well, but found that we were over-ambitious to start it all this week. I got pretty sick last week, and some necessary preparation didn't get done. So...we're cleaning out desks, accumulating school supplies and tweaking the master schedule that we plan to follow for this school year this week and will begin the full schedule on Monday. I'm ready and, therefore, loving the shift to fall and school. Hurray. It feels good.
Our new baby is doing well. I'm 19 weeks and feeling the first movements. We're nearly half way in the pregnancy. I just read that the baby is over 6 inches long from head to rump and weighs around 9 oz., roughly the size of a large, heirloom tomato. :)
Well, it's 9:30, which signals bedtime for me these days. I expect to be back with pictures in about a month. Until then, I'll occasionally update on what's going on with us.
