As you can tell by my lack of posting I've been quite busy. Between school, work, swimming, homework and just the regular everyday stuff I don't find the time to sit and write stuff. In all honesty, there really hasn't been much going on here. Ella's enjoying the 3rd grade. She has so much more homework than last year. I think the homework thing is actually harder on the parents than the children at this age at least in my opinion. Sam is doing well in preschool. He loves going to school and has a great time. 

Both the kids are in swimming lessons. Swimming is really Ella's thing; she loves it and would spend all day in the pool if we let her. She has a couple weeks off until she starts twice a week again. That means I'm driving 20 minutes (one-way) for swimming three times a week. But they love it. 

One of the main reasons for not blogging so much is that it's just easier to update on Facebook. Now that grandma is on there I really don't need to be on here so much. I'll probably come back to it again once in a while, but I feel guilty for not updating and I don't want to feel guilty. :)

If you'd like to "friend" me on Facebook (for my normal followers; I know there are a few of you left) feel free to do so. http://www.facebook.com/shannon.silusswanson

Otherwise, I'll update occasionally but at least I won't feel guilty for not doing so.

Bye for now.
