Time to say "The End"

I have started to find sites to move all the posts from this blog into a book for the kids.  When I started right around 9 years ago, I never would have thought I could have made it to 601 posts.  But when this book has started to be reassembled, I have looked back into those first few posts many times.  This was a great tool to let my kids have a view into life during a time they would never remember, or ever know about from inside my mind.  Unfortunately, when this becomes a book for them, I do lose the template of the blog, comments, and the direct link to things like videos, but I'm going to keep all of my posts in the book.  Every silly survey I filled out, every picture I posted, every happy or sad thought I cataloged.

Life has become ever so more busy than when I first started.  Even over the past two years, which was my last post.  I am about to have a teenager, which scares me, and a few years later, a second teenager, which scares me even more.  But I have had so much help as was chronicled by this blog and in a way, it is a great tribute to them as well.  To the grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends that have helped and continue to help us raise our kids, Thank you.  I am so thankful for all we have already experienced and all the things we will experience in the coming years.

This is by no means the end of our journey, but it must be the end of my chronicles.

To our children, if you made it through all the pages in this book, well done and thank you!  We will always love you!
