It's really hard to believe that I started this blog over five years ago (and let's just forget that I haven't updated in two and a half years). It really doesn't seem like it has been five years since we left California, but it has.
I thought I would try to start blogging again, but no promises. I don't know, is personal blogging even necessary anymore, with Facebook and Twitter? Do we need blog posts updating people on our lives when we can just write a quick Facebook update?
You may or may not know that we have moved to a new apartment in our neighbourhood. It's a three bedroom in a small building of six apartments, and we're very happy here. It's on a quiet street, but only a few minutes walk to Yonge & Eglinton, Yonge & Davisville, or Mount Pleasant. The kids are still at the same school, though Hayley will be changing schools in September to begin the Junior Extended French Program. Half her day will be in French instruction, and half in English. She's sad to be leaving her friends and teachers behind, but she's also very excited, and we think it's a great opportunity for her. I'm not sure at this point how I'm going to manage getting them both to and from school every day (the current school is southwest of here, the new school is northeast, and we are about equal distance from each).
I am the co-chair of the school council this year, and that's keeping me busy. I'm also co-ordinating our annual fun fair in June, and preparations are under way for that. It's a lot of work, but I'm excited about it.
Carl is enjoying his job. He's been there since July, and it's a great fit for him. Life is better for the whole family when he comes home happy at the end of the day!
So that's the update. Let's see if I can post more often.
