WOW! I cannot believe how quickly January slipped away. We had so many things going on with work and home and school and...ahhh!!

So, some quick updates:
  • I am SO happy to report that Johnathan had a clean bill of health after his last colonoscopy. He is 1 year cancer free! We are incredibly excited about being able to move forward. I am even more excited about Relay for Life this year, too! Johnathan can truly walk his survivor lap with pride!
  • Snowpocalypse 2011 kept us out of school for a number of days, disrupting all the aspects of school for us, including exams and the change to the spring semester. Needless to say it interfered with all of our scheduling, grading and such to the point that even TODAY we were still retesting from the fall semester. However, we did start the 2nd semester yesterday and I think I'm going to be challenged and exhausted as we adjust.
  • We were also so excited to celebrate the holidays with Johnathan's oldest sister Alisa, her husband John and their children. It was the first time we were able to open Christmas presents with all of the kids together. What a joy to see my niece and nephew open presents and say "I got Buzz! I got Jessie!". That morning was very special to us, even if we were celebrating Christmas in January.
  • I do plan on returning to blogging more regularly once things calm down a bit (and yes, I know that I say that fairly often when I get slack). Hopefully I can start writing about books and sharing more photos :)
I think that's all the major updates for now. Hopefully, I'll be back to blogging soon!!
