My apologies to those of you who remember with longing the days of daily updates. Liam keeps me too busy for me to do update more than once a week or so. We’ve ousted his daily nap entirely now, which means I am at m’lordship’s beck and call from 7AM til 8PM. Lucky for YOU, he went down “relatively” easily tonight, so I’ll fill you in quickly.
Much of our time recently has been taken up with the job search. In less than eight months, we’lll no longer be in the military. We have no clue where we WILL be, but answering to the USAF will not be involved. We’re finding that prospective employers aren’t looking as far ahead as we are, so it will probably be some months before we get any real job leads. Watch your local papers, and if you hear of a job that has Jesse’s name written all over it, let us know!
About a week ago, I got my hair cut. I hope you like the pic, as it’s one of the few you will ever see of me on this site!
This month is our niece’s birthday. I don’t even want to say how old, because it makes ME feel old just to think of her being a teenager! Liam, Jesse, and I made her this great card!
Today we went to our favorite store in Belgium, IKEA. We weren’t searching for anything special, but found this great canopy for Liam’s bed for only 5 euro (about 6 dollars). He loves his “rainbow tent,” and his bed is now his favorite space in the house.
We recently added to Liam’s tractor/digger collection. The little yellow digger is a thrift shop special — I think we paid 50 cents. The front loader tractor he’s clutching comes from the Belgian version of Toys-r-Us, and cost a whole lot more. He loves both equally.
Expect to see more frequent updates in the upcoming weeks. It’s just occurred to me that this may be our last summer in Europe, so Liam and I are going to start doing a lot more traveling and venturing into the great unknown. Of course, since I’m designing these trips around the interests of a two year old, chances are you won’t be reading about us exploring an old abbey’s ruins. You’ll be seeing lots of zoos, nature parks, and recreational centers. But Liam will be starring in all the pics, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy!
