It's hard to believe, but we have completed - successfully I might add - the first quarter of our school year. It has gone by so quickly and for the most part easily. The children are all doing great. My kindergartener is finally having reading "click" for him which is so exciting to see.
Today is my husband's and my 16th wedding anniversary. In some ways it feels so short, yet in other ways it feels like I've always been married. We both waited for so long to find the right person. Then we've been busy packing as much living as possible into the last sixteen years not the least of which has been adding eight children to our family. It's been an exciting, wonderful and, yes, sometimes difficult journey which I would not exchange for anything.

I've been able to do a lot of sewing this week. I finished a dress for my middle daughter and cut out the fabric for a dress for my youngest daughter. We're getting geared up for everyone to make gifts over the next few weeks. It's an exciting time of year.
I just noticed that I used the word "exciting" a bit too much in this post. ☺ I guess I'm feeling rather upbeat today. ☺
My daughter has an exciting ☺ week planed for her blog - Ramblings of a Janeite. She's doing a week of posts, including some guest posts, about Robin Hood in all its various forms - book, movie, tv, etc. She also has a nice giveaway going on with some Robin Hood themed prizes. You should check it out because I'm telling you that a couple of the prizes I wouldn't mind winning.
If you're married - how long? Did you accomplish any goals this week?
