The boys are thrilled with their new radios too, and Katrina is already covering herself with butterfly tattoos. Thanks Bonne Maman!!
The trouble with getting behind in a blog is that it's cumulative: the more behind you get, the higher a bar it seems to write and catch up! I know a blog doesn't have to be a play-by-play -- gaps are allowed of course, but I was born a documenter, and it's some effort to wrest my mind away from that mode. Quick notes have always eluded me.
Also, I fret a lot that any concentrated time should be preparing for exams instead of blogging, and in the end, neither gets done!
