Well, it's been two years since I posted anything, and during that time I had no desire to write. Life just gets busier and busier, and I quit blogging when it began to feel like one more thing I had get done just to cross off my 'to do' list. I can't really explain what's changed; maybe it's just that with the beginning of summer I've had a chance to breathe...which is strange, because this summer is going to be very busy with kids' activities.

Grant is 10 now, and he's in Little League. They have double-headers every Sunday afternoon. Ross is 6 and in T-ball, which plays twice a week in the evenings. Both boys are also starting the Lil' Bruins football camp this week, and Ross has already finished vacation bible school. Grant is taking golf lessons through Fargo Parks, and Ross will be going to a basketball camp later this summer. What about Hope? Well, she's 4 now, and she loved swimming lessons this spring, so I need to enroll her (and the boys) in another session very soon.

The sad news is that Kris has to go to another Officers' Training School for the Air Guard this summer--in Orlando, FL. He leaves tomorrow, and won't be home until September 15. :( We will miss him SO MUCH, but I think he'll miss us even more--he won't be around to enjoy all the kids' activities and just tool around the house all summer. He'll also miss 24 days of his next school year. So--between kids' activities and going in to work a few days a week, it's going to be a balancing act.
