In a Nutshell

I have photos and video spread over SO many computers and hard drives right now...  So rather than a proper post on any of these things for today, I will give you a quick recap of the last 2 months. I will likely come back to all of this again, but as an overview...

We're tired.

-- We enrolled Nolan in preschool.  He goes to Challenger School just up the hill from my office 3 days a week, from 9am-5pm.  And he is LOVING it.

-- Ben started yet another school year, checking in students, training RAs and RHA kiddies, organizing programs...  and trying not to lose his mind in the process since his normal busy time happened to overlap my busy time this year (normally our convention is in November.  This year it was in September)

-- XANGO Convention came and went...  thank HEAVEN (on the went part).  It was huge for my department, given that we had to rebrand the company and all of our product lines in the 3 months prior to convention.
To call it insane is an understatement of EPIC proportions.  
I wish the fact that convention is over meant that things were slow around here... but alas.  I'm still crazy busy. Project management is a lot of work on top of my archiving duties.

-- Her wee tininess is 6 months old now.  She won't go in for her check up for another 2 weeks, since we were late last time, but I know for sure that she is getting bigger daily.  She's still little, relatively, but she's got some chunk on her, finally.  She's rolling all over the place, eating some solids, and sleeping...  pretty much like her brother did at this age...  which is to say, not very consistently.  

I think I can speak for all of us in saying that it feels like a bit of a miracle that we even survived the past couple of months.  And if someone offered to let me start over and try them again, I would punch that someone in the face.  

But we did survive.  

And we're going to try to make Fall awesome...
because it is, after all, the best season there is.

Sounds like a crazy few months! I feel ya on the no-blogging thing. It just hasn't reached the level yet of need.

Hooray for a new header! And for survival! And for fall! I'm loving fall too and its great to see Ben's face light up when its mentioned during the small talk part of staff meeting. :) Your family is, as always, cute and happy-in my imagination which I doubt is too far off from reality.
