Life in the Last Six or So Months

Life in the Last Six or So Months

Exhausting, chaotic, busy, joyful, stressful, and every other emotion you could possibly imagine has characterized the last half year or so of our lives around here.  I haven’t blogged much, mostly because I haven’t felt like it.  It seems like there isn’t a lot to say these days, though there obviously is.  Normal, everyday life...

That’s...
