Friends, how are you all doing? I'm so happy to see new faces and old friends.
It has been sometime. We are all here. It has been a very interesting couple of months. We are wrapping up our formal school year at home and are ready to start our summer adventures. This year we are hoping to camp in northern Virginia, NY, and in Maine. My dh is happy we are getting back outdoors.
Both of my boys are good, I realized last week my 2 year old is going to be 3 in a few weeks and that my 8 year old has become very wise. In sad news, my sister left her newborn baby with me. And we have been taking care of her since then. My husband had his doubts (as did everyone else) that she was going to come back for her, and asked me to find away to tell her to comeback for her daughter.
I see his rationale, he didn't want to become attached to this baby and then have my sister come and take her back in x months are x years. Unfortunately, my sister does have a history of doing these things (leaving her children with others instead of raising them herself). It makes me sad knowing we are giving the baby back to such uncertainty. This baby has been long enough to have thought we are her parents and my kids are her brothers.
I'm still around on Facebook so throw me a PM and we can catch up and keep in contact there.
