So I’ve been rather quiet on the blog here these last two months. Sorry about that, but there really is a good reason. Or five. So the good news is that I’ve been keeping very busy work-wise. I keep thinking that I’m going to branch out in my writing, but International Living has got me so busy that I don’t even have time to update my blog, let alone pursue other writing venues. That’s okay though, because it’s steady work and I enjoy it, so no complaints here.
In September, the boys and I began our school year again, which always takes a few weeks to settle into, but this year was especially messy because mid-September David and Jesse went to Panama for a week. During that time Magdalena came to stay with us again and with the upheaval Justin pretty much got to take a week off from school (as did Jesse who was on vacation).
A week and a half after the guys returned from Panama I left for an IL conference in Las Vegas. I spent four days there and then continued on to South Dakota for some family time (more on that very soon). After returning mid-October I’ve been scrambling to catch up on writing, editing, and preparing for further IL events and trips. Oh, and we’re working at settling back into a homeschool routine (more on that in a bit). Sooo…….that’s where I’ve been and why I’ve been noticeably silent. Sorry about that and I’ll do my best not to let it happen too often. Keep your eyes open for insights on what it was like to be back in the U.S. after three years, coming soon!
