Here and Back Again

First of all, THANK YOU. Your comments, your emails... Just thank you.

The memorial was held at the end of last week followed by a trip to bury her ashes in her hometown where she wanted to be buried. We are glad to be home and I think we're all glad to be welcomed by a "normal" week this week. We'll ease back into school a bit, and Brian and I both go back to working our full schedules.

I'm catching up here and there. I spent yesterday afternoon revising our homeschool plans to account for very little "real" schooling in the last month, and I opened my google reader with the intention of catching up, but with over 1000 new posts in 2 weeks, that isn't likely.

And there hasn't been a lot of knitting or reading these last few weeks with all that's been going on. It's partly because of recent events, partly because of having to commute to work for the first time in 4 years (a time suck that I'm trying to rectify with listening to knitting podcasts and sermons), partly because of trying to put our priority on being present with the boys, and partly because I'm totally exhausted all the time.

I thought the exhaustion thing was normal at first- all the hospital time, driving a lot, and being worn out emotionally made sense. But after having some other pretty obvious symptoms I'm happy to report that the current knitting drought is for good reason- we have another little one joining our family this spring. I can't even begin to tell you how excited we are, though feel a little curiosity at the timing. What an interesting expression of God's tender mercies poured out on us just when we need them most.
