I know, I know....I've never been gone this long.

It's been a crazy-busy few months - - work, activities, play dates, guests, yard work, spring cleaning....on and on.  You know the drill. Plus, I'm trying desperately to launch a new website and new blog and new business. (yeah - in my spare time).  Oh, and then there is the attempt to still be a half-way decent mom and wife too....

Most days, I fear that I'm failing miserably at the whole lot of it.

As you'd expect, the blog has come in last lately. So, I've made a decision. Rather than attempting to get a blog post up, and then failing at that too,  I'm officially taking a hiatus. It will be brief, but a break none-the-less. My hope is to be back online again within a month. June 15th if I'm lucky.  With a new blog, new business and new attitude! (wish me luck....)

In the meantime, here is a shot of Henry. He turned 8 today. Eight!! Amazing.

I hope you'll be back too next month!!

Hmmm.....It's been one of those days.  But then I found this.

Yup. Better.

Earlier this week, when I picked up Anna from preschool, she grabbed a few dandelions that had seeded out.  "I'm ready to make a wish," she said.  "I wish that I could play with my friends whenever I wanted to."  And then she blew....

Incidentally, we were headed to Anna's friend Addy's house.  Perfect opportunity....

"Anna," I said "Would you like to go to Addy's house right now?"

Her eyes grew big and she jumped at it.  "Yes, yes, yes!"

"Let's go," I said.  "And guess what, your wish just came true.  You are going to your friends house exactly when you wanted to."  

Without missing a beat, Anna looked at me and said "Dang, I should have wished that I knew how to fly." 

If only, my dear.....
