Even though I haven't posted much the past few weeks, I have been looking at my blog. I've been trying to finish uploading and making my blog from 2008-2010 into 3 separate blurb books before my groupons expired. I made the deadline by an hour and a half, but it was a lot of work. Reading back over the past 3 years of posts, though, made me nostalgic and renewed my determination to keep blogging (even if I used to get around 10-15 comments and now I get 0!) I don't have a good long-term memory and I easily forget what we did and how I felt. As I read over my posts, I felt a deep sense of contentment and gratitude for the family I have, the life I live, the opportunities that have been mine.

As I've been a slave to blurb, the kids have been fighting, reading, practicing the piano, playing the Wii, eating popsicles, swimming, playing with friends, building forts, making glow-in-the-dark bugs, going bowling, playing play doh, etc. etc.
We've also been getting ready for our San Diego trip by learning about some of the animals we'll see at Sea World. Here's the kids with their penguins, which we made to show about countershading, and their shortening finger/blubber experiments.

I feel the same way about my blog--I don't think many people read it or care, but I do and I love that I have documented so many things that I may not have otherwise. I like your blog, too, and am glad that you will keep it up!

Totally cute idea to learn about the animals before you go. I hope you have a great time!

You're my favorite blogger--love you and your family!

Jessy and Jeri, I love both of your blogs, but I read them on Google Reader so I'm lousy at leaving comments.
