I am extending a blogging apology to all of you out there who have faithfully followed our blog and prayed for our family and have taken an genuine interest in our lives. I have dropped the blogging ball. My world has gotten a little bit more busy around here and this is something that has taken a back seat.
I blog, like many of you, for different reasons. Not only to I love the connection and bonding that I have found here in Blogville (even my girls have gotten a great pen pal out of it), it is my new way to record our family history. I have printed our first 2 years of the peapod blog into a few books and it has been so neat to read. I just do NOT have the time anymore for scrapbooking, nor any other hobby. But I want our family history to be recorded in some hard bound format. Blog2print was the easiest way to do that. Check it out if you haven't printed out your blog.
I have also had some picture/camera issues. Not that I am offering up excuses, but I love posts with pics. My cell phone has come in handy to send some pics to facebook for keeping the in-laws updates on our world here. But I am disappointed in my camera (looking for a new one). I have taken the time to put a water mark on my pics that include my children (trying to keep the blog stalkers and stealers at bay - yes, a friend of mine has had a bizzar encounter with that kind of thing and freaked us all out). And that takes more time to load and alter those pictures.
Not to mention I have pictures in several computers (none of which are working great) in a few folders. It takes some time to hunt those pictures down.
And, not sure if you noticed, I haven't been commenting on blogs lately either. Yep...so sorry to leave you all stranded from the lack of comments. I always love comments and try to do the kind gesture of blessing you with my stamp of visiting with a little comment, but...haven't been able to find the time to do such a thing lately. I am often checking blogs on my phone (seriously...I have become that person who uses her phone for EVERYTHING) and it isn't always possible to leave comments. So...I have tried to check in on you all, but I am like the phantom friend.
I have been working hard at fostering connection with our 2 newest blessings. And just so you know, it is going VERY well with our new boys. I love them to pieces, and the are a blessing to boot, all be it, they keep me busy. From sun up to sun down, my kiddos have my full attention. They bring such a beautiful joy into our family and we are sooooooooooooooo happy to have them in our family. We have been very intentional in our bonding and attaching time. We have almost had them with us for 2 months. WOW...time flies.
So, for this season...my house is messy...my meals are simple...my clothes are basic...my hair up in a pony tail...my homeschooling (well...I couldn't be doing it with out help from Grammy)...and my blog...not a huge priority.
But, oh how I love having little ones again. I love being a mommy to all of our children. Thank you God for allowing me to be so blessed.
