Wow! It's been a while since I posted. Lots of things have happened, but I've taken very few photos. Oh, well.
Between Christmas and New Year's Eve, I went to visit my folks in California. It was a short but very good visit. And the plane flights were smooth and easy, no lost luggage, etc. Marvelous.
Kids went back to school on Jan 2, and life is back into some kind of routine. Austen will experience his first-ever Semester Exam schedule this coming week. He's really happy that he'll get out early - maybe he hasn't figured out yet that the extra time is meant to be used to study for the NEXT exams!!
Today is my birthday, and so far, so good. It's a gorgeous day outside, not hot, not too breezy. Just right. I'm going to send my mom a big bunch of flowers - SHE'S the one who should be celebrated!
