Rainy Days and H.O.T. Days

We have been experiencing some VERY hot days here!  On the days it's not miserably hot, it rains.  Most of the time, the rain comes in quick storms and is gone as quickly as it came.  We try and get outside as much as possible to run our wiggles away, but sometimes, you just have to be creative with indoor play.  

Fort time with our neighbor friend... dumped out all our insects, dinosaurs, zoo animals, jungle animals and used our imaginations...

The thunder storms have been so frequent and loud that both kids are now a bit frightened, yet intrigued, when they happen.  

Life is full of all sorts of new experiences... looking forward to many many more!

A Year Later....

It's been just about a year since I've blogged.  I miss it.  I think about it almost daily but have trouble finding the time to sit down and write.  It's time now.  I'm going to try again.  Zayit and Ziva have grown up so much in the last year.  We've done so much in the last year.  Where to start?!??

In January, we moved.  Not just a little move... more like the 1000+ mile move.  We moved to the South.  Yup... that's right y'all.  We live in North Carolina.  WOW!  Life is different, but at the same time, very similar.  We miss our family and friends back home in Connecticut but we are having a blast making new ones here!

Last night we had an amazingly awesome thunder storm come through at dinner time.  We were lucky - our power didn't go out.  Some of our friends weren't so lucky.  But we turned the disappointment of no power and icky humidity indoors into an unexpected play time in rain puddles with our friends who were 'in the dark.'

So, this is my start.  I will be back.  I will blog more.
