... and it's hard to believe I've missed an entire winter's worth of blogging. Funny how going back to work cuts into one's spare time. I've missed keeping up with all of our ordinary moments. It was a long winter, which means we're looking forward to what will hopefully be a good summer... fingers crossed. There were snow days and snowmen; hot chocolate, homemade cookies and plenty of hockey. Another Christmas came and went. Easter eggs were coloured, Birthdays were celebrated, Ben lost his first tooth and the kids outgrew all of their jeans. So it goes.
I haven't stopped taking pictures - I'm sure I've added another 500+ pictures to the 6000 or so that are already slowing down my computer. I know it's way past time I moved some to disc but I so love having them right here. I've acquired another camera - a Sony Cybershot DSC H-5, which is slightly smaller and easier to carry than my good old Canon Rebel - but I'm not sure I like the photo quality as well. I'm no pro, but to me digital SLR beats regular digital hands down.
Last night was soccer practice for Matt, this is a good thing as their team was hammered in an exhibition game last Sunday. They'll be needing a lot more practice it seems. Next week the regular season begins for the rest of the boys.
So, the cold arenas, stinky hockey equipment and skate sharpenings are behind us. For the next few months it'll be all about soccer. Just like that, it's spring.
