When I started this site, I never expected to make daily posts. Weekly? Maybe. Monthly? Less desireable. I’m kind of ashamed that it’s been three months with no updates, but there hasn’t been much of excitement to talk about. There haven’t been any big adventures this fall. I’m just plugging away at the Ph.D. thing, which has also made me uninspired to write here. So, here’s my update for now.

It’s snowing. We had our first snowfall that actually stuck, and though it’s only a few inches, it’s enough to put on our boots and snow gear and go out and play. This year Clara is old enough to really appreciate the snow and all the fun that can be had, and that makes me happy. I can’t wait to take her out snowshoeing. I’ve thought about introducing her to skiing this year, but I think I’ll wait on that one for a number of reasons. Until then, she’s happy to make snow angels, build snowmen, throw snowballs, and sled down hills.
