Hallelujah! I'm back!
Remember when my shitlins spilled SEVERAL CUPS of milk INSIDE of my laptop? Well, it finally met it's maker. Yes, it died and went home to that Steve Jobs which gave it life.
But PTL (Praise the Lord), I finally got me a new MacBook Air...and I'm feeling giddy.
Where do I even begin?
Life happened. I did some stuff. Kids were crazy. Kids were cute. I slept. I ate. I cried. I laughed. Vic and I fought. We made up. We argued again over something. We made up. Same with the kids. Summer happened. It was wonderful and exhausting. My nose turned 1. The tip of it is still numb. I'm still glad I did it.
I started teaching "Let's Play Music" classes to kids. In fact, today was my very first lesson and it was a smashing success. I still have some openings in my afternoon class and I'm anxious to get them filled! Why do more people from Park City with kids ages 4-6 not read my blog? Come on. I need your kid in my class.
Some summer highlights include (but are not limited to):
-Lots of time with Bice cousins. (see Instagram)
-A trip without children to Seattle (see Instagram)
-Several TV appearances
-My parents came home from Russia! (they lived there nearly 4 years!)
-Weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth (Peter & Zoë)
-Several moose sightings (see Instagram)
-Had some singing gigs
-Was hired to speak at a few events
A lot of noteworthy things have happened over the summer. I've often thought, "Oh, I can't wait to blog about this." But the moment passes, and I forget. Or the photo I want to attach to the post is lost somewhere in our old computer. Most of these moments have to do with Lucy. With the way she still lives on in our family. Or the things I am still learning about life and love and sympathy and service because of her death. My kids talk about her SO OFTEN. She is part of our everyday vocabulary. They ask questions about her. It breaks my heart when Zoë thinks we are actually going to see Lucy and play with her when we mention "going to see Lucy at the cemetery."
I think the video below is a good sampling of my summer--Hiking the trails under the beautiful blue Park City sky, singing with my Zoë June about our Lucy while huffing and puffing for air. It's a beautiful, confusing, surprising life.
