Well, it’s been quite the long while, hasn’t it? If I get out of the routine of doing something, like writing and taking pictures, it’s a big deal for me to get back into it. I have to think about it for a few days (weeks?) before I can settle into the rhythm once again that makes me happy.
Thanks for some of your sweet inquiries on the twins’ tonsillectomies – all went well, and we are pretty much now back to normal. In this in-between time, we’ve also celebrated Adeline’s birthday, Keith’s birthday and spent a beautiful weekend on the Gulf to celebrate my Dad’s retirement. We’ve seen a long-lost brother who flies to town every once in awhile and we’ve gone to a baseball game with good friends. I’ve realized our girls remember nothing from past swim lessons, so we are going back to the basics for this hot summer pool weather, and just this week, things are normalizing for me as well – I have a loaf of bread in the oven, knitting is happily occupying my hands and the children are interested once again (hurray!) in reading with me for long periods of time.
Here’s to the small things that bring such joy!
