Making Time To Blog

It seems like it has been forever since I have had the time to sit down and blog. But truthfully, it has been forever since I have made time to sit down and blog.

Blogging means so much more than just writing a post on our latest happenings. It is a log of our journey that I can look back on for years to come. I'm sad that most of 2011 hasn't been logged.

It also gives anyone and everyone an opportunity to peer into our lives. We are an open book and love sharing what God is doing in our lives. I'm sad thats all been hidden this last year.

But as I look back and contemplate this silence on our blog I realize that I have missed it even more so as an outlet. This site has been sort of my journal. It's a great feeling to be able to express, create, celebrate, and commemorate. I am sad I haven't made time for such life-giving things.

I feel that it is time to reinvent our blog, and make time for myself to be able to blog, share, express, create, and give you all a peek into our lives. I'm excited and hopeful. :)

January almost came and went as fast as December! My how time can fly!

We start off our new year with a New Years Hike on January 1st. It always exercises us not only physically, but mentally, and emotionally!

We started in on redoing the girls bedroom. It went from yellow and colorful and flowery to this! Such a grown up look for the girls room!

We also got a hermit crab, that we named "Hermit". Original I know. He has been pretty low maintenance, so we are enjoying having him around.

It's been hard jumping back into the school routine. We are getting there slowly but surely! Check out the Strickland School blog to see what we are learning!
