Hey, how's it going? Life is flying by around here with a bizarre mix of chaotic and leisurely. Leaving the house happens rarely and we practice saying no regularly, yet we still manage to stay busy. I am so glad that we chose for me to take an extended maternity, I'm off until September. I really feel like I am settling into being home and enjoying my girls (you know, most of the time :) It's a once in a lifetime opportunity, having both of us home for 6 months, and we've been making the most of it. Now that I've submitted Part 1 of my National Boards, and Elena is starting (most of the time) to sleep more regularly, I'm hoping that I will have bits of time to write a few thoughts down.
