Reviving this blog

It's been more than 2 years since I published to this blog - high time I started on it again!
The kids have gotten so big. William is 2, Zoe 4, and John 6.  John started 1st grade 3 weeks ago and I started doing lunchbox napkins for him  - I've been trying to improve my drawing skills, so the best way to do that is practice practice practice!  I've also started illustrating the kids' chore charts to get some practice there.

William continues to have terrible eczema on his arms and legs - it's clearly allergies as it comes and goes, but we can't seem to figure out what he's allergic to. He's talking all the time now and has a fantastic sense of humor. And Zoe is... simply amazing. Her imagination, intelligence, and emotional awareness are stunning for a child her age. I've tried to keep track of her (and the boys) stories as they tell them, but I know I'm only capturing a fraction of what they tell me.

It's hard to believe that only 7 years ago, I was struggling to get pregnant and praying for healthy children. Now we're blessed with three amazing, smart, beautiful kiddos that make my life so much better every day. Even when I'm screaming at them to pick up their toys. And by screaming, I really mean "bellowing" ;)
