What a quick and busy summer and now we are back in the swing of another school year. Quite unbelievable actually.... Here's the recap: Broken ankle, reunion in Beaver City, 12th birthday party, vacation in Minneapolis, camp (for the 1st time) for CM, VBX for Cam, baseball, softball, art camp for Cam, Peschel family reunion (Sam's mom), Holmes family reunion, week at Grandparents house in Hershey, 8th birthday party, final fling at Mahoney State Park, fall softball, fall soccer and now here we are. 7th grade is hard. Why is it hard? Because there is no recess. Who knew? 2nd grade seems to be going great. Sam is still plugging away at his home away from home. I'm still doing what I do. Some of you might have noticed my absence from face book and yes it is true. I'm taking a break until after the election. This election is too important for me not to comment on and I don't feel I can do that freely on face book without harming some of my relationships. If you are interested in my political opining you can find me on Twitter or at my new blog. (Get a hold of me if you are interested in the address for that.) I will be back on face book though because I really do miss keeping up with everyone. So that's the update. I'm hoping to blog a bit more so check back again sometime!
