tap tap. . . Is this thing on?

I'm back! I think. We'll see. It was a nice little break living the non-blogging life - no pressure to get a post in before midnight, no having to upload and resize pictures, no taking the time to find the right words, no worrying if I'm coming across as show-offy or stupid. I forgot what it was like to just live and not have to package everything into interesting little paragraphs accompanied by neatly cropped and color-corrected pictures.

But now I have no record of the things we did this month. Like 4th of July fireworks at the CBS Studios:

or our hike:
to this place:
???

or the trip we took to see the Noah's Ark exhibit at the Skirball Cultural Center :

or how I volunteered at the Handmade Nation art auction at the Poketo studio.

I never told you about the countless playgrounds, library excursions and playdates we had:
or the homeschooling we did:

(. . . or tried to do. . . he's a bit of a daydreamer.)

I didn't do a big writeup of Comic-Con 2008:

or tell you about our stay on Coronado Island:

and our visit to the Wild Animal Park:

Sage's hair is getting long. So is McKenna's:

Well, not that long, or purple, but wispy and blond. But it's there, in case you were worried.

I'm still here too, in case you were wondering. Thanks for sticking with me. I now return you to your regularly updated patchwork world. . .

I am glad you are back. You made one happy Nana and Papa in far away England!

Love, MOM

Nice to hear from/about you again. I need you to tell me how to do this blog thing, because I feel like I know all about your family from reading this, and if I could do this, maybe my other far-off relatives and YOU could know what is up with us. Hey--how was the earthquake? We've been worrying about you, that's why I checked your blog...

Thanks Lisa and Countrygirl. Hi Mom!

Hi Cheryl! I would love it if you had a blog and we could see our nephews more. The earthquake was a little scary, but mostly exciting. I just grabbed the kids and huddled in the middle of the room and watched everything shake for about a minute. It was my first, and hopefully my worst.
