The Blog is Back - Heavy on the Pictures, Lighter on the Text.
By far the longest stretch without a blog update and that means there would normally be much to catch up on. Turns out I started this post back in July and I finally got around to finishing it. When I opened it up, I noticed that I had written a lot about the kids' first year in kindergarten, the triumphs and difficulties, medical issues, etc. As usual, I included some candid thoughts and some of my half-assed attempts at humor. And then I deleted it all.
I've decided to take a different approach. As you all know, I'm pretty much an open book, and for most of the kids early childhood, I've spoken in honest terms about M&M, their health, and other family matters. Now that they're getting older, it's time for me to pull back on that. I'll talk in greater depth in other forums, but not to the same extent that I have in past.
The good news is that I'll be able to post more frequently, it's just that the posts will be primarily photos and videos and much less text. I will maintain all of the older posts.
For the first installment of the M&M blog v. 2.0, I'll get you caught up on pics from last year. Look for another post shortly with the more recent pictures and video clips. Enjoy! (And if you really want to know how I feel, just ask me.)
