I'm still alive...

So it's been a while...but I have a really good excuse! I moved! I also have had sick kids and have been sick myself. I've thought about blogging a thousand times, but I had so much to do in so little time that I had to prioritize and do what was most important- like organizing the laundry room, putting all the dishes away, doing laundry, memorizing a script for church, getting K ready to start at a new school....the list goes on and on! I finally decided to bite the bullet and just make a short post to let you know that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth! Okay, back to unpacking....
