Dudes, I know it’s been a while. The tornadoes that ripped through here, although they did not touch down in our area (SO GRATEFUL), disrupted our lives for a bit. Our internet and phones did not work for several days afterwards, and that Saturday we decided to head up to St. Louis. We just got back a couple of days ago, and I’ve been in a tizzy doing all kinds of house-stuff since then. I have a bunch of photos and video that I want to put up, but I have to edit them first. So, a quick update: we are all awesome, with some potentially new fun work stuff (Amos) and school stuff (moi) on our horizon; we tried and loved Ethiopian food, especially Hazel who sampled a bit from every dish on the table, including her Aunt Laura’s; Julia is the smiliest baby I’ve ever met, again including Hazel; and I got cleared to exercise again, which I’m very excited about. Whew! Ok, here’s a photo to tide you over, and I’ll be back soon with regular postings and more photos!
