We had our parent-teacher conference today. We so enjoyed listening to Marguerite talk about our sweet, thoughtful boy. He's contemplative. He's smart. He's funny. He's nice to everyone. He's positive. He is, in a nutshell, a delight.

Found this on my camera today. It just might be my favorite photo of them together. Thank you Jana.

Today I was off. Maybe it's that I'm overwhelmed. Or that I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Or that I feel behind.

Could be that I'm just too busy and need to recharge. Regroup. Re-something-or-the-other.

I did cross something super important off the list. Owen and I went to the hospital to get his blood drawn today. It was a piece of cake. Why was I so stressed about this task?

Owen is sleep regressing.

He, as captured above squealing in delight about something, isn't phased at all.

Too bad I don't feel the same way.

The dialogue in my head since last night's school Board of Director's meeting:
  • This is absolutely crazy. We're starting a school.
  • How are we going to raise $75,000 by Christmas.
  • wow! These families are so devoted to this mission.
  • I sure hope the IRS accepts our 501(c)3 application.
  • God is so faithful.
  • Why is this so hard? I sure hope it's worth it.
  • How awesome is it that we are two months into the year and have not had to take any money from our nest egg.
  • I sure hope we pass the October 17 vote at the new church.
  • and on and on and on and on......

Cruising in the double BOB along Finch Street with our snacks and water.

Task #4 from Merrill:

Move that body!


What? Everyday? Is she crazy? Turns out, she's not. 11 days into moving that body I'm feeling loads better.

With the exhaustion that has accompanied this past year, I've found exercise to be next to impossible. I've missed feeling strong and the energy that comes from exertion and breathing fresh air.

Thank you Owen for finally letting me get REM sleep and waking just once a night to eat. Thank you Merrill for getting me moving. Thank you Jeff for, well, everything.

It was moving day across the street.

Can't believe we moved here 8 1/2 years ago. Seems like yesterday and also forever ago.

I wonder when we'll be hiring a moving van again or whether Robin Road is where we'll always stay.
