It's Been A While...
Well, It's been a while since I've written. Some of you out there might have been wondering is she ever coming back. The answer is yes.
I've decided that my blogging journey will be perhaps a bit different now. I still love researching about my family and I still love making new discoveries and connecting with cousins. That I will continue doing. I just feel that I have to be the one driving this blog and the blog not driving me. There's a whole world out there that I've been exploring since I have taken time away from the computer and you know what, I've been enjoying myself.
I've been doing a bit more painting in my spare time. When I paint, it's meditation time for me. I love the process of getting quiet and focused and just letting things out on paper or on canvas. It's a great way to relax.
As a family, we did less travel this summer. We did visit Cape Cod at the end of June. I realize now I don't think I posted any pictures from that trip, so I will have to get busy doing that after this post. Since then, we spent time visiting nearby state parks where we had a blast swimming and getting some sun.
Sports season starts earlier now for both kids. Soccer camps and gymnastics practices were part of their weekly schedules so there was Uber Mom to the rescue getting them to where they needed to be.
On a sad note, I did learn that my maternal grandfather's youngest brother Bobby passed away in April. Bobby was sweet quiet soul who I had the pleasure to meet with a couple of times when I had the opportunity to visit North Carolina. I will miss the sound of his voice and his sweet laugh. Rest in Peace Uncle Bobby. See you on the other side.
I hope all of you out there had a wonderful summer filled with fun and relaxation. School starts this week for the kids, so I guess I better get ready for Fall.
