I haven't written a real live blog post in almost 2 weeks.  I was so proud- at the beginning of January I was entering challenges and posting almost 5x a week!  I was also getting lots of picture taking in.  Let's see, where to fill you all in...we've been busy busy around here.  Midterms were last week and I spent most of last weekend creating and preparing for the midterm and this weekend grading them.  I have been super busy at school having tons of meetings a week...I'm so thrilled to have only two on my calendar for this coming up week!  And when I get home I am BEAT!  I've been trying to motivate myself to start a new book but by the time 9pm rolls around, I'd rather slep than read!

Gage and I did get to spend some time outside this week because the weather was so super nice.  We went on a nice long walk, which we haven't done in months and went to the park one day.  Although I'm loving the weather, I have come to the realization there will be no snow days this year, although we did get a 2 hour delay Monday am for ice.  We had 3 playdates in the last week and a half and they're getting to be a bit more interesting these days.  I'm so involved in making sure everything is going alright that I completely forget to take any pictures.

I do have a few pictures from a couple of weeks ago of Gage's new found love- his tool bench. A colleague of mine who has older kids offered his Home Depot tool bench to Gage before it went to Goodwill. If you remember, at Christmas, Gage had just started liking to 'fix' things, so I said, 'sure, bring it over.' I have no idea.......Gage has been wanting to play with it since and asks about it before we even leave school.

This is Gage's drill face

Checking out the circular saw

The toolbench is even complete with a clock.

In the last week, I also received my super cute new camera strap, courtesy of Swanky Camera Couture, an shop.  You likey?  These are iPhone shots so might be hard to see the color.  I still can't figure out why everyone raves about the iPhone camera.....grrr

I think that's all for now.  Hopefully I'll regain my blogging spirit and won't leave you hanging for a week or two next time.
