Two years ago, I made my first foray into the world of blogging with the launch of Why Amy Smiles.
One year ago, I took my first break from blogging because I was all wrapped up in this:
And now, a year later, I’ve taken my second extended break, but for a different reason.
This spring has kept us hopping. The culprit? Baseball season!
I am proud of Chandler. When we told him we weren’t able to pay for the homeschool baseball league he wanted to join, he went out and got a job. Except for what he gave back to God on Sundays, he saved every penny and used it to pay for the fees, uniforms, and equipment he needed.
I am proud of Chandler because he knew that being the new guy on the team this year meant he might not get as much playing time as the more seasoned players would. But whether he was on the bench, at the plate, or in the field, his attitude blew me away. This young man loves baseball!
So forgive me for abandoning this blog for a time while we drove all over the world (or, so it seemed) to watch our firstborn enjoy his, and America’s, favorite pastime. Thanks to all of you who prodded me to get going again, and to all who understand that, as long as I have kids at home, I am a mom first.
And although I wasn’t sharing them with you here, there were plenty of things that made me smile while I was away. I am glad to be back, and look forward to catching up.
