It's been a while since I've done one of these, so I thought it might be good to pass along a little update about what's going on in our lives. Especially as the world starts to see the light at the end of the tunnel, regarding this pandemic and how that is impacting the world around us.
I think the last one I wrote in this vein related to an update at the year mark in Indiana. Since that time, we've traveled back to Texas for a couple of weeks for Spring Break to see family (one thing I love about Indiana schools - two week spring break, two week fall break, two weeks at Christmas/New Years). Jamie and I have both gotten our first vaccination (I got the Moderna vaccine, Jamie got the Pfizer vaccine). We're trying to settle back into a routine for these last few weeks of school. And we got to take our first get away since the pandemic started that was not back to family. We made a quick weekend trip to Michigan to see tulips and to step in Lake Michigan. That one was our first trip since moving to Indiana, our first trip that was just the four of us, and our first since the pandemic.
So there will be a new traveler's report coming up with photos from that little getaway. There will be a few posts this week on the news that has broken today, the celebrations of the week, and prep for the Oscars this weekend.
In looking over the last year plus of posting, it's also made me realize I have left one part of our story off the blog and I look to correct that - our adoption journey. We're nearing the completion of our homestudy for domestic infant adoption, so I want to share that story too. And that will let me talk about why this weekend was so stressful. That story will come far in the future when I've taken enough anti-anxiety medication to put it behind us.
Lot's to look forward to and lot's to share. Hopefully can be a little more diligent about sharing it going ahead.
