September 2011...Really??

Somehow, unbelievably, it is September 2011.  I think I am ready to begin blogging again after too long of an absence.  So, what is the current status of things?  Let's update by family member...

D, the Hubster - still pastoring away and getting all the paperwork necessary for Methodist ordainment, Navy chaplaincy, and Methodist endorsement.  He continues to be my best friend, the best dad I could ever have prayed for, and my biggest cheerleader and supporter. 

Doodle - she is back to taking dance class, has started piano lessons, and is enjoying 5th grade.  Her heart is so sweet and pure and she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.

Meesta - he is still our gymnastics stud, progressing by leaps and bounds.  He is enjoying 5th grade and the extra independence that seems to have come with that.  We are so proud of the young man he is becoming.

Shenzy - our little whirlwind of stubbornness and wit just turned 7!  It is hard to believe she is growing up because she still seems so physically little, but has always been much older in intelligence and sense of humor.  She continues to keep us on our toes.

Yours truly - work is going well right now, it has been incredibly busy and is now just regular busy, but still exhausting.  My PhD continues to go well, my first 3 chapters were recently approved and then this past week the IRB approved my research and I am now able to travel to Cambodia to collect my data as soon as I have all the pieces in place...not sure when that will be for a variety of factors, but likely early November 2011.

Hopefully I will get back in the groove of preserving memories and processing thoughts in this little safe place.
