All right, so it's been a long time. A loooooonnng time. It's amazing how much it can feel like every day blends in with the rest so that there's nothing to report... and yet when I start looking back and thinking of summing it all up, there's SO much that it's overwhelming! So that has been my story for the past several months.
Several things have happened or are happening in the Hewitt household and extended family which fall under the broad category of growth:
|Baby Abby, at about 3.5 months|
- Noah and Lily turned three in May. I'm not sure where my babies went, but they are long, long gone. I can't believe how big they are these days! They chatter constantly, remember SO much, and question everything. Being off with them for the summer is exhausting on a daily basis, but so much fun!
- We bought a house! After a year of renting a small house in Bastrop, a house happened to go on the market that was exactly what we were looking for. It's rather more blue than I would like, and it didn't have a fence, but otherwise it's pretty much our "dream" home. Scott fixed us up with a fence pretty quickly, and it looks great!
|A little of our pretty new fence!|
- We are about to embark on a multi-state trip, since both my sister Emily and my brother Mark are getting married! Emily and Dan eloped last July but are having a traditional ceremony near Nashville on their first anniversary. And Mark is getting married to Teresa less than a week later, in Bloomington, Illinois.
And that is all for now... this post has taken me about three hours, since I have to stop about every 3 minutes and provide entertainment, breakfast, or conflict resolution. Not to mention that blogger has apparently made a lot of changes to their formatting since I was here last, and it's taking me a long time to do things. So ta-ta for now... hopefully I'll update in less than 8 months...
