back to beautiful normal

The other branch of the Clark family has, as far as I know, landed safely in the vicinity of Montgomery County, TX. We had a very busy and refreshing 5 days or so, and I was so glad to get to spend time with them!! Several months ago, we cracked down on a no-more-debt policy and that has made it difficult to get back and forth to Texas as often. So it was great to have family come to us, and SO AWESOME that we easily housed 8 extra people without it ever feeling too crowded or too nuts. I heart this house SO MUCH.

This morning, R2 started 5th grade. It's pretty surreal because he is the size of a 5 year old, so I never think of him as 10... so 5th grade just sounds silly. He was crazy excited all morning, signing "yes" (which he is convinced means "school") and jumping around. I took him up there and dropped him off, then went to the office and did more paperwork. His classroom has big windows out to the front sidewalk, and when I was walking to the car, I saw him in there with the other little special guys, and they were clapping their hands to music and he was just jumping around everywhere. It does my heart good to see him so happy there, and I LOVE his new teacher.

It rained hard all morning long, and it was just so cozy in the house with all the windows and the rain and most of the lights turned off by Mr. Frugal Frugality and just the two babies puttering around, and Han coming in and out of rooms eating an apple. I love rainy peaceful lazy days. I just get in various comfy places with books. Cats have it good.


  1. Yeah! I'm so happy for R2. I'm glad you like his teacher too!
