It was a dark and stormy night and the children were nestled all snug in their beds. She sat alone at the computer knowing that she should update her blog ...
In reality, it is a terribly dark and stormy night. John and John Mark are off at Boy Scout camp; fortunately they were able to switch to a cabin when they saw the weather forecast. Becca is at a friend's house and the three little boys and I are together again, just the four of us.

Our past week has moved at a our normal frantic pace with an assortment of odd moments thrown in to keep us on our toes: 4-H, AWANA, Co-op, Bible Study, Worship Committee Meeting, Piano lessons, Children's Chorus... John has had a big project at work so he has been working until all hours and receiving updates in the middle of the night. Both of us have a cold. Child #1 got behind in his math, but after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, he is caught up again. Child #3 is grounded for the weekend for unbloggable badness. Child #4 is giving the family daily updates on the number of days until his birthday (7 days and counting...) Child #5 has finally begun the Reader's Rite of Passage in our home: "How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons". (It worked with child #1, so I stuck with it. Four down, one to go!) The kids' computer died today for some mysterious reason. And I am too tired to scrapbook, too lazy to do laundry, and too uneasy about the weather to go to bed, so here I sit, just me and my blog...
