What? You’ve quit coming here?

But, it’s time for our bi-annual update! I’m done making (sorry) excuses for why I don’t write more often. Not only am I letting down the three fans of our blog, I’m doing myself an even greater injustice by having to organize six months worth of information and pictures at one time. Heck, I can barely remember what happened last week, much less last year, so you think I’d get my act together! I really do intend to learn how blogging should actually work but, for now, it is what it is…

Where shall we start? I believe I left off with early fall preparations for the expansion of our family. Since then we’ve had a family reunion, Halloween, home renovations, Thanksgiving, Hannah Claire’s 3rd birthday, the birth of Caroline, Christmas and now life with TWO little girls. Just typing that sentence made me tired!! To say the very least, things around here stay busy. But it is a busy that we love and wouldn’t trade for anything.

I’m still working from home and, other than that, spend most of my time carting the girls around to appointments, school, church, etc. Ryan is still enjoying his work at Emory and has also managed to take on like 43 ‘side jobs’ as well. He’s writing a business plan for a new company, researching and writing a white paper for another company, and still working on his own little BBQ venture. How he manages all that plus a house full of women, I’ll never know!

Now on to all the fun stuff* that has gone on in the Jowers’ world for the last six months; fasten your seat belts, it’s a bumpy ride!

If you’d like to read about our stuff in chronological order, scroll down to the “Room(s) for Two” post and start from there.
