I took a long hiatus from this blog before I ever really got it going. First, I designed 95% of the theme, and then didn’t finish. I had good intentions, but I got busy. Between work and home responsibilities, it can often be hard to find time or creative energy to do more than the minimum.

My daughter is doing fabulously well. She started preschool in February and is growing by leaps and bounds in so many ways. She can read all of her letters and write most of them legibly. We spend a lot of time on art projects; water-color, tempera, crayons and markers. She loves them all and we love to indulge that passion of hers.

Last Christmas we got her the LeapFrog Clickstart First computer. Her mousing skills miraculously appeared in less than a week. She occasionally plays with it. It is a good quality educational tool where she really gets to practice her letters as well as hand eye manipulation skills.

It can be a daunting task to try to catch up all the detail that is necessary after such a long hiatus. I’m not going to try to catch up. I’m just going to begin anew from here.
