Thank you to everyone for the lovely emails and comments. Your prayers and support continue to be a real blessing to Dave, the children and I.
I thought I would give a little peak at what we are doing here. It always seems so much less until I write it all down. Then when I see what I manage to get done, I want to go lie down. It goes without saying that there were many interruptions and distractions throughout this whole school day.
