Still Alive!

Yes, it's me. I'm still alive! See?

Sorry about the extended vacation--I didn't plan to be away so long, but life intervened in a really good way. My son came home for summer and I wanted to enjoy every single precious moment with my family. How could I be sitting in front of my computer when moments like this were happening out in my husband's office?

Father and son jamming on their various ukes built by my husband. Angela was playing too (she's over to the left, just out of this picture), while I was soaking it all in.

Grayson and I also had a teeny tiny fruit/vegetable/herb stand for the summer. We made Grayson a little pocket change for college this way.

Even Mr. Bigglesworth couldn't help but soak in every single precious moment with his big brother home:
Obviously, all of us wanted to relax and live in the moment.

Grayson goes back to college in a couple of weeks, so I'll probably have more time to blog once I get caught up on things. Actually, it was Grayson that fervently suggested I update my blog today--he didn't like that you were all concerned about me. I wrote a few of you individually and tried to explain, but as always, I got overwhelmed by email and had to give up for a while! Somehow, I have to try and find some balance. Please bear with me while I re-group and figure out how to participate in Blogland again.

I do have some wonderful "What I Did on my Summer Vacation" pictures to share with you! Perhaps in a couple of weeks, I can start posting again with some regularity. In the meanwhile, I'm going to enjoy my son's last couple of weeks at home and try very hard not to get too sad when we have to put him on the plane again.

Aloha and A Hui Hou for now.
