I know that I promised not to neglect this space quite so much, and I really did have the very best intentions not to.  Several of my relatives use this blog as their primary means of checking in on our family, so I never really WANT to neglect it.

But the last couple weeks have just been a little much.  Seemingly every time our family catches it’s breath we find out that something else important is happening with someone who is important to us.  They are all ordinary ups (new babies) and downs (cancer) in our ordinary lives, but for some reason there has been a flurry of them all at once.  Please excuse me for another few days while we find the words to explain some of the downs to our girls, while we find ways to be there for those who need support, while we celebrate with those who are experiencing some of the ups, and while we process everything going on.

(I feel I should clarify: we are not having a third baby right now and none of the four of us have cancer.  So don’t get too excited or worried about us.  We’re like the slow and steady tortoise, just plugging along.)

    Good to know that life is still getting in the way of what we think we want to do !~! I’ll be here when you get a chance to tell us about it.

    I do miss your writing but at the same time I find it comforting that you are on the other end of this internet just living & experiencing life and allowing that to be what it is. I hope you all stay well! (I will still be here when you are ready to write again).

    Count me in too, as someone willing to wait. I never understood how you found the time to blog with even one child!  I click for you on top baby blogs everyday, weekends included.

    Courage Sarah.  This too shall pass way too quickly and be replaced with memories.
    Take your time.  Take care of you and yours.  We’ll be here when you come back.
