It’s time to re-emerge from a multi-month break, one I’ll refer to as “Hibernation” since it’s winter to spring. To be honest, the past few months have been a blur. The common thread throughout is illness. I think all of us have been sick at some point. Present company excluded, of course, but I make up for it with a mysterious broken bone in my foot that lingers to this day.
This winter has been a blur with all the snow we’ve gotten. I forgot to keep track of the big total, but we easily got several feet this winter. While I still love the white stuff, even I got tired of it after awhile. We also started saying goodbye to my trusty shovel that’s been through blizzards with us since 1996. It hasn’t been buried just yet, so we’re holding off on the 40 pour.
The big stagecoach keeps on rolling, and it keeps sounding like I have a ticket to ride on it. We’ll see for how long or if I even want to stay on it.
Ethan has really taken to preschool and is blossoming from his shell. We were already seeing remarkable jumps from him prior to enrollment – now you’d never know we needed anything for him.
Garrett continues to excel in general – he does well in school and is popular outside it. He may be the type where we’ll need to beat the girls away with a stick.
I remain proud and thankful for all the things Jennifer does for herself and for me. I believe I wouldn’t be near where I am without her.
We’re enjoying the national post-season basketball run the Mountaineers are putting on. With or without Truck (solidarity through bone breaks!) it’s been a fun run to date.
