Catching Up!

So there's no good excuse for letting the blog go for 8 months, but I'm back. :)  I have wanted to start it up again so many times, but just was overwhelmed with the idea of it. 

With the New Year, comes resolutions. One of mine is to blog again. I want to document our lives for my kids. So they can read about our life when they were little. And so I can remember the little details that time will erase from my memory otherwise.  

And to kick it all off, here's a pictorial recap of the past 8 months!  :)

Starting in May...
Sara went on a field trip to a One Room Schoolhouse. It was so much fun!
Our good friends returned from Kenya!
