Let's try this again, shall we?

I've been a bit overwhelmed and this blog has fallen by the wayside, but I'd like to try to revive it. But I feel like I've lost the trick of summing up my life in pithy little posts, so bear with me.

Since the last time I posted, Alec has turned one, gotten lots of teeth and learned to walk. Franny's started pre-kindergarten and is learning to read, and Drew's started second grade, and is reading everything he can get his hands on. Drew's also having some kind of mysterious stomach ailment which may be intestinal parasites, although we're not sure. More on that as we know more.

To be honest, I've been struggling. Sleep deprivation, hormones, maybe some postpartum depression, I dunno, but it' s been a hard year. I feel like things are getting better, now that everyone's in school at least a little bit (there are two mornings a week when all the kids are at school), but it seems like establishing a routine has been very hard, between teacher work days, Drew being sick so much, and various and sundry commitments that interupt our schedule. Still, it is nice to have a few hours every week to be by myself, and remember who I am when I'm not Mommy.
