It's been a LONG time!

Unbelievable! I have not posted on our blog for over a year. It has been a great year - full of family activities, house construction (and destruction), sports, plays, vacations... Having four kids is so crazy fun.

As I was leaving my kids' piano lessons a few weeks ago, all four kids were talking to me at the same time. I was smiling and nodding and giving appropriate "ohhh" & "wow" - an older woman came up to me and said, "My goodness! You look as tired as I feel!" The sad thing was, I didn't feel tired at all! That's the life of a mom of four.

What has brought me to blog today is a comment I received recently from one of my posts. I cannot seem to get to the other blog to respond. So... Michael, I would love to chat with you about your adoption of a little girl from Vladimir. Please give me your contact information and I would be more than happy to get back with you!

Tess is doing awesome! She's a blessing to our family and makes us laugh every single day. I could tell a million stories about her, and still miss a few! She starts kindergarten two weeks from today. Amazing that only 18 months ago she didn't know one English word. Now she's more than ready to start kindergarten. Such a smart and beautiful little girl! I hope to post more soon. I forgot how much fun blogging can be!
