overdue

  • I've misplaced my camera cord.  It irriates me for more reasons other than I can't post pictures on here.
  • The month of July has been crazy. busy. full of bittersweet changes. (Hence the lack of blog posts.)
  • Most have heard already, my Dad was in an accident at work last Friday.  His right arm/hand was badly injured.  Broken, smashed, shattered, torn.  He's had 2 surgeries so far, a skin graft scheduled for Saturday, then discharge if all goes well.  DR is able to save his arm/hand, and is confident he'll be able to use it and return to work.  When and just how much he'll be able to use it will depend on recovery/therapy.
  • It won't be long and we'll offically begin our 2011-2012 homeschool year.  We're looking forward to this year, as our set up will be different than previous years {knock on wood}.  Slowly but surely I'm getting our ducks in a row. 
  • Kids have enjoyed spending time with cousins.  With all the recent heavy rainfall the local beach has been closed.  Although summer shows no sign of leaving soon, we're anxious to enjoy a day at the beach.

Sounds like life is busy! Does your camera have a SD card? You could get a card reader if it does.

Hopefully we'll be able to meet up soon!

Busy is right but nice you are near again.
Thinking of your folks daily, thanks for the update.

Sure have been thinking of you a lot lately. I like how you worded your changes, "bittersweet". Good why to explain. Keep strong.

Hoping your dad heals quickly. It sounds like that was one of those times that could have been much worse, too...

I can't believe it's time to talk school again already, but it seems it is. Hope you get your restful day at the beach!
