Well, I don't know if anyone reads this anymore, but I was thinking of my blog the other day and thought I'd give a quick update.

We are doing well.  Our children are now 12, 8, 5, and nearly 3!  We're returning to homeschooling; I will have a 6th grader and a Kindergartener, and our 8 year old will continue at her public school M-TR, then be with us for our small co-op on Fridays.  She also started attending our state school for the blind last year, so she will keep going there one week a month.

I've been helping my sister-in-law and her husband with their gaming company (Proving Ground Games), which has included working on a technical certificate in Business Administration so I can better assist (and hopefully secure a paying, at home job one day!)  It's been hard work but fun, we went to the Origins Game Fest in Ohio a few months ago and did well. 

My husband's employer sold the company to a larger company, which unfortunately is struggling and handed out pay cuts to everyone.  At least it wasn't a pink slip!  We tighten our belts up some more and keep moving forward.  We've been working on paying off debts and not acquiring more.

My husband and I built raised-bed garden boxes from pallets, that's worked pretty well and I've been canning a lot, which I love to do.

I can't think of much else to add!  I've toyed with the idea of blogging again, but as you know I'm the world's worst blogger and I don't have much to say these days, I guess.  God is good and I hope all of you are doing well!

This is SO weird, because I just happened to click on an old post of mine and was reading the comments, and saw yours and thought, "I wonder what she's been up to..." So I clicked over, and saw you had just posted today after more than a year! Kind of freaky ;) I even had to double check the date because I thought "she couldn't have just posted this!"

So I take that as a sign that you need to start blogging again :)
