Like I actually have time to "pretty-up" my blog! Between being the Mom, the Wife, the Room Mom, the cook-everything-from-scratch mom, the chauffeur, the tutor, the maid, the family accountant, the transcriptionist, the tries-to-do-everything-perfectly-and-never-quite-gets-there mom (big sigh), I just haven't done it. And I may never do it! I have to come to grips with that. That said, I think this will be a great place to at least record the comings and goings of Bethanie, Paul, Max, and Lily. "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." --Ferris Bueller. Here we are on Max's 8th birthday.
