Thank you for your patience with me for the last month! As you have probably noticed, I have been missing in action since the beginning of December. Although my last post was on December 7, I actually have not written anything since Thanksgiving break while I was in Maryland. Our family returned to California for our most difficult and busy month of the entire year. I hope to write you more about our dark December, but for now I will just have to say that there was no time for blogging in the midst of it all. I do hope to do a little more blogging in January before the birth of our third child! She is due on January 22, but knowing our kids, she may arrive in early February. I don’t know how regular I’ll be able to blog with a newborn since that will be a new experience for me. Thanks for hanging in there, and joining us in our adventures!
