I feel as if I just don't have the patience right now to sit in front of the computer and edit pictures, combine them into a coherent storyline and then amass them into a blog post. I'm not sure if it's spring fever (which is coming early here...we already have buds popping out of the ground!) or just general end-of-winter malaise and my lack of vitamin D, but I'm all over the place right now. And it is quite evident in everything I'm doing right now...nothing feels as if I'm either completing a task or doing it properly. I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm actually looking forward to my annual trip to Houston for my cancer screen MRI next month. Other than the actual anxiety surrounding the MRI results, I will have a nice, several day visit with Paivi, warm weather, good food and a relaxing day or three at the pool with a spa treatment thrown in for good measure.
In the meantime, here's a peek into the past week or so in our lives here. Yiayia and Pappou sent a tree swing which Len (with Lucy supervising) hung up in our front yard.
This past weekend saw the end of Kate's brainbusters course with Northwestern University's Center for Talent Development. The last 15 minutes of class were devoted to showing the parents the various games they had learned. I can definitely tell that her math skills have improved as she blazed through the multiplication questions in one of the sections.
