An Update on Life

I know that some people read my blog for the interesting posts that I put on here, but I do realize that some people actually read this blog to find out what is going on in our lives.  Suffice it to say that there are some large things going on in our lives, but I can't blog about them.  Some things just do not belong on a blog for the entire known world to read about.  I could switch my blog to private and put more personal stuff on it, but at the end of the day, my blog is a social networking tool, and I like to find other people who like ECing and attachment parenting, and I have made some really cool friends and met some pretty spiffly people through this blog.  Therefore, for the known future, I will keep it public, but I will also not put on the really big nasty stuff that happens in life.

However, that said, there has been a lot happening in our lives lately, but it's not stuff I feel that I can share. 

On the other hand, here is a short synopsis of the summer travels.

Three days before Jackie got out of school, we had a family emergency, and we left for Monticello.  Rob came back almost immediately, but the kiddos and I stayed 10 days.

Then, we came back, and four days later, the older two kids left for Georgia with Rob's mama.  They went to Virginia with her to see Rob's sister and her two kids, and then they went back to Atlanta where they all met Daniel and me at the airport.  We continued to south Georgia where we hung out there for a month. 

We got to play with our friends who still live there, and we had a ball.  My kids love Rob's parents, and we really miss them while we are out here.

Then we came back home and spent a lovely two weeks in our clean house that Rob worked so hard on and then the kids and I packed up and went to my mama's house for the 24th of July.  It's a huge holiday there, and it was so much fun.  The kids loved the parade where they got huge amounts of candy, and they enjoyed the park where we ate Najavo tacos, cotton candy, and snow cones.  It was lovely.  We also played a lot with Camille.

Then, we came back, and we are almost caught up from that trip.  We probably would be except that we have had several bouts of sickness since then. 

Daniel has had yet another ear infection, and Jackie was blowing chunks while at the same time, her tonsils got so swollen that she was having some difficulty breathing.  The antibiotics worked alright for both of them.

On Friday, we took Rob to the airport where he flew to Montreal, Quebec, Canada to attend the Acadamy of Management conference.  We are missing him, but we get to pick him up at 1:30 today.

Now, our goal is to get ready for school to start.  We find out who Jackie's teacher is today, and I am also going to see if I can enroll Ben in preschool this week.  

I don't email family letters anymore.  Maybe I should.

Hey there!

Blogging hasn't been my highest priority recently either. It started out kind of like you: too many things that I can't talk about online and then before I knew it, it was six months since I had posted. Sheeseh....

Glad to see that things are well with you guys, except for the whole blowing chunks thing. :) It really does get easier and they really do stop getting sick all the time.

Lubbock still good for you guys?

Anyway, hang in there!
