Summer break is (un)officially over.

Cue the "gasps" soundtrack now. I finally have a new blog post. I figured it was about time, considering the last one I wrote was before we left Holland to head to the States for the summer months.

Fall is in the air, even if it is only mid-August. Windows have been left open at night, leaving a cool aired out house in the mornings. The crisp air reminds me that my summer is nearly over. Kids are returning to school, the school supply aisle in Target is picked over, and thus.... I feel the need to be more productive once again.

Summer was fabulous, we were fortunate to travel and spent a lot of quality time with family and friends. Pictures will come eventually.... unfortunately I spilled coffee on our computer the other day and thus we are dealing with photo issues once again. Oh my luck. Fortunately I had enough common sense to quickly back everything up via Time Machine, so let's hope that it worked.

To ease any curious minds, we do not yet have a job lined up, which is why we are still in the States. We had a couple of offers that fell through, and thus we are back to square one. I have a peace though, that God will provide as He always does. After spending an extended amount of time here two years ago, I am trying to remember to just enjoy each day instead of wishing it away.

In the meantime, I have always thrived on routine. I used to look forward to school starting just so I had a forced schedule once again. Crazy, right? Please tell me I'm not the only one. It is time to start tackling some home improvement projects around here while Kaleb naps. A mirror in the garage is begging me for another coat of white spray paint. ;)

Happy Monday to all, and here's to seeing us in the blog world a little more often!
