Around Here Lately

What a hiatus. 

I'm sorry! 

Life has been just-barely-hanging-on around here. Being the principal of a start-up school is the hardest thing I've ever done. Being the principal of a start-up school on top of being a mother pretty much takes every last ounce of energy that I can muster. 

But I really want to get back into blogging. It's my reflection space. It's my planning space. It's my space to connect with each of you and to draft the kind of life I want to write for myself (and revise, revise, revise!).

I've been through so many changes in the past 3.5 years. I gave birth to Henry, I published a book, we moved to Austin, I helped open a school, we started building a house, I got pregnant again, I had a miscarriage, I got pregnant again, I worked on starting another school, I gave birth, we moved into our new house, I breastfed for a year, and I opened a school.

All all of those seeds we planted are now taking hold and sprouting: the school is open, our house is complete, and we are now a family of four.

And even though I've been trying to savor each stage along the way, it is even more imperative that I allow myself to just sit and savor this for a while. Maybe that's part of why I haven't been blogging--blogging pushes me to start scheming and dreaming!

No, I haven't been blogging because I just simply haven't had a spare minute. I hope I'm able to squirrel away some moments and spend them here in the coming weeks!

I hope all is well with you...

Work it girl! I honestly can't believe how much you achieve. Don't feel guilty for taking a little break from blogging! I'll be here when you get back at it :D

A well deserved break. Take as much time as you need!

Congrats on the start-up of your school. What an incredible accomplishment. It sounds like the kind of school I would love for my own son (he turns three in December). Too bad we live in Massachusetts. It would be a bit of a commute ;-) I hope it is a great school year!

Savor every sweet moment you have with your three guys.

I've been thinking of you a lot this past month and wondering how everything was going now that your school is open (!!). So impressed with all the work you do. Happy to see you back in your corner of the internets.

Thanks for still being on the other end! It's great to see all of you!

Sarah, I've been gobbling up your blog posts when I see them in my feed. I miss you!
