I really admire those of you who can continue to post regularly through life's busy seasons. Even though I may not post for a while, rest assured I'm still reading--even if I don't comment. When life gets crazy, something has to give...so we've been busy. The birthday weekend was full of just about everything. There was even a parenting lesson that became painfully obvious while watching our now-nine-year-old crash and burn at her birthday dinner. There is such a thing as too much stimulation, even at that age!
