A Fresh Start (again)

I promised myself I would start blogging again on (or before) September 1st. It's now 9:34pm, very near my bedtime and I'm tired, so here goes ...

I'm trying to start blogging again. 
I'm not making any promises to myself, like I'll blog every day for a month, but secretly I'd like to blog everyday this month. It's just that my track record for those kinds of goals is not very impressive. But enough of that. 

Greeting Chase at the Spokane airport on July 27th. He served an LDS mission for two years in the Missouri, St. Louis mission. So proud of him!

Today, my children returned to school. I was ready. We've enjoyed a fantastic summer. Chase returned from his two-year mission and we were ALL together again (first time in three years!) This is also the first summer since 2001 that I have not worked. When I sold Big Picture Classes, I promised myself I would NOT commit to anything during this first summer that would require sitting at my desk for long periods of time -- I eagerly kept that promise. Anyway, Clark is a Sophomore at BYU in Provo, Utah. He is majoring in Exercise Science with plans to attend Dental school. More on him later. Trey is a junior at CVHS and is working part time after school at Geoff's ENT surgery center, scanning patient charts. I won't be seeing much of him. More on Trey later. Taft, my youngest boy started high school today. What thrill it was to watch him walk away with his two good friends, turn the corner into the school and be greeted by a whole group of older students (including Trey) who serve as a freshman LINK leaders -- Taft started kindergarten after we moved into our current home and though it's been nine years, it seems like yesterday that I put him on that big, yellow bus and watched him ride away. Crazy. Addie is starting second grade at Greenacres Elementary School. She spent last year at a private school (Pioneer) but is now returning to public school -- lots more on Taft and especially Addie very soon. 

For now, I'm happy to say that I blogged. 
Good night.
