Like Sand Through the Hourglass . . .

Three months. Poof! Gone! I don't know where the time went. The boys had a busy spring soccer schedule, the end of the school year was as hectic as ever, we had a lovely two week visit from Grandma Jane. Now summer is half over, a summer where we don't have much planned and where some afternoons stretch on for hours and hours, but the days and weeks are speeding by.

Craig and Luke are heading to Alaska for two weeks on Saturday. Luke will stay with his two sets of grandparents for ten days while Craig is up on a glacier, and then they will have a few days together before they fly home. I've only ever been away from Luke for five days, and he's never stayed away from both parents for more than a night. I'm a little nervous but very excited for him. My baby really wants to spread his wings. Where exactly have the last nine years gone, anyway?

Yay! You're back! I check like, every few hours. Luke will do great at the grandparents. Mom and Dad are getting all hip- they are texting now! I woke up to a text from dad. I am not sure if it's scary or not.

Keep posting. I have been "posting" on my blog, too. Like, 3 words every month.

Okay, I just re-read some stuff I wrote on my blog. Maybe don't read it? It's stupid.

Oh my gosh! It's a new post!

Mara, what's your blog?

And how exciting for Luke! And for the younger two boys. I think it's nice for children to have an opportunity to be not around each other - does that make sense? Like at school but this is a treat for all of them because it's at home and at grandmas' homes which is nice, I think.

Maybe we will see Luke! We don't leave AK till Tuesday. He will do great! Glad to see you are posting again :)

I was wondering if you had any advertising or guest post opportunities available on your site? I would love the opportunity to work with you and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Oh Mara-don't worry too much about the texting---I already broke my new phone---dropped it in the creek.
