100 mph

we have been home for about 6 weeks. i feel like i have been catapulted from country roads onto the freeway. and really, that's kind of what happened. life hasn't stopped for one. second. since we've been home. 

luke started 2nd grade about 10 days after we got home. we had school stuff to buy, open houses to attend. etc. etc.  then liam needed a preschool. so we got that taken care of. it's amazing and wonderful and a 20 minute drive away...so that is taking some getting used to. we got the boys to the dentist, and found out we have to get some work (ok a lot of work) done for luke--poor kid apparently inherited my teeth. i have been canning and freezing fruit and pizza sauce and homemade baby food. we just got a new niece! and are going to visit her this weekend. did i also mention i'm opening an etsy store? and selling my stuff at a boutique? more on that later...

but seriously. i am just amazed by the constant swirl of the fast life around me. 

and in addition to that feeling, i also feel a bit like frodo returning to the shire. we have been on a journey, and we are different people than we were when we left. it's hard to explain. but everything is different now, even though it's so very much the same.  i am not quite sure what to do with myself. and life, of course, doesn't care what i think. it just keeps coming. 100 mph. 

anyway. we're back home. and i'm back to blogging. 


  1. Boutique? Etsy? Can't wait to hear more. We have to get together soon.

  2. I wish I was there this weekend with you all!

  3. Glad you guys got back safely! I'm sure you are all changed...what a neat experience. Hope you can slow down a little and enjoy being home.
