Ok, I know I've been a pathetic and neglectful blogger. Things have felt pretty out of control the last couple months. (Mostly because we travelled 5300 miles across the country for over 2 weeks.) I just haven't taken the time to write about life because I've been too busy living it! But I've decided to try to take more time for solitude- time to ponder about things. I've committed to wake up early again (before the kids get up!) to read, pray, study, and write. I used to do this consistently, but it's become more of a challenge since Jarom was born, mostly because I don't sleep as well at night. But it's amazing the difference in my life when I've made this a priority. So I seriously need to get back to it.
Another reason for my neglect is my hardrive crashed recently! It had all the recent pictures of the kids on it, so I was pretty depressed about that. Thankfully, Mr. Wonderful had backed up the computer, so we located most of our picture files, and we're still working on restoring the rest. But excuses aside... I know I need to get back to blogging. It's such a great way to feel connected with friends, to record our family experiences, to gain clarity and perspective, and to share my love of family and truth. So it will take me a while to get caught up, but here goes!
