A blog resurrected...

Well, it has been 4 long months since I last blogged.  To be honest, I wasn't sure that I was going to come back to it but I think I am finally ready.  I don't really have any excuse except that I have basically no free time with a two year and a 10 month old and when I do have a free minute I am usually sleeping or cleaning.  Blogging has not made the top of the list. However,  I can see the light through the fog and things are starting to clear up around here.  Tomorrow is one month in our new house! We are so excited to finally be moved in and so excited to be done with the packing and unpacking.  Life still doesn't feel settled but with Knox starting back up at preschool next week I think we will finally get back into our old routine.  I LOVE routine so I am very excited for next week to get here! 

If I tried to sum up all that we've done in the past 4 months it would be too long.  In a nutshell here are a few highlights of our summer:

- I flew to Virginia for my little brother's College graduation.
- We all flew to Virginia for my little brother's wedding.

- We all flew to Virginia to spend a week on the North Carolina coast with my family.

- Kyle's mom visited for 10 days.

- We moved! My mom was here for 2 weeks helping us get unpacked.
- We all flew to Oregon to spend a week on the Oregon Coast with Kyle's family.

It has been crazy busy around here since April! Four plane trips and one house move later we survived.   Here are close to a million pictures of the last few months! After this I'll get back to short and frequent posts :)
