What we've been up to

2016 has been good (and challenging) for us.  On February 2nd I was finally able to have surgery to repair all the damage I had done to my knee on July 4th, 2015.  10 days following my original injury I ended up in the ER and ultimately Intensive Care with a massive Pulmonary Embolism.  After dealing with blood thinners, Physical therapy and aches and pains all over I am doing SO MUCH better.  I'm able to run again, ride bikes with the kids and pick up on all the things I missed in 2015.  I now know I won't every be jumping off a 2 ft high deck EVER. AGAIN.

As for the kids, they finished first grade in June.  We've had a great, but FAST summer.  We've been swimming, going to the park, riding bikes, running, playing and pretty much enjoying every moment of the summer that we can.

We're headed to MN at the beginning of August for a fun family vacation.  We're going to head to an Twins/Astros game and then camp for the weekend.  This will be our first time camping.... wish us luck!  :-)

Second Grade starts in 4 weeks and this mama's heart is heavy about that.  It just seems time is moving faster and faster.  There are days I want it to move fast... and other days I just pray it slows so I can enjoy more moments.

I hope to provide more updates (and be a better blogger) as we finish summer and move into the fall.
