What to post?

I keep thinking lately that I should blog about something, but there just isn’t much to say lately. The boys are still funny and smart and fun, and I’m sure they’ve done things worth writing down, except that any time I sit down to write, I can’t think of specifics.

Our good friends who lived upstairs in our house just moved down the street.

Our thoughts have been consumed with Big Decisions about a) whether or not to apply to PhD programs, b) which PhD programs to apply to, and c) how to make our future work.

I had another piano recital. It amazes me how quickly each of my students is progressing (some way more quickly than others). It warms my heart to hear kids play beautiful music and feel pride in their work.

Halloween was fun, even despite the hailstorm at 6:00 p.m. It cleared up afterward and the boys had a great time trick-or-treating.

We got to go to Denver to meet my brother at the airport as he came home from his mission to Honduras. It was so great to see him again and spend some time together as a whole family again.

The nice weather continued into November, ending only a couple of days ago, which means we’ve been playing outside a lot until recently. That is such a blessing for the boys, who play so much better out there than inside, and for me, because I really thrive on sunshine.

I am all but finished with our year of international meals. The only three that remain are Venezuela, Malaysia, and Vietnam.
