I realize that I have been neglecting this space lately. I miss writing, I really do. I like to catalogue what we are going and life here. I miss writing the funny, "what they said posts" too and I realized., the other day, that my kids are getting too old to say too many off-the-wall zany things! Oh, man, I miss the funnies!
But we are hanging on here and life is moving forward. And this is what we have been up to, what I haven't been up to and some complete randomness thrown in there! Happy Friday everyone!
Go visit Jen, for more inspirational Quick Takes!
We officially started school this Wednesday. I had wanted to start WEEKS ago, but with the sickness that has been in our house, I just could not. This was the first week we all seemed to be well ENOUGH to make it through our school work.
The first days of school went well. There was only a minor amount of wailing, by K (2nd grade) who lost all confidence in his reading ability, even though he read over the summer. So we had to start at the most basic of readers, but by today he was back on track and reading what he should.
2. What I am not doing . . .
Working outI MISS working out. It has been about two weeks since I have had a real good workout. I, pathetically, attempted a run this week. I had to stop about four times in a half mile due to coughing fits. I gave up. So, it is rest and working real hard to get this cough kicked out of my body and our house for me right now.

4. Maybe some funnies . . .
We are learning about China right now in homeschool. And as I read to the boys about China, A looked at me and said in an emphatic tone,
"Mom, let's just go there now and get our Chinese kid!"
I like what the Pope is thinking much more . . . .
