a long time coming

i've been on a bit of a blog hiatus lately. we had an amazingly busy few weeks that i'm still recovering from. we had friends in town staying with us (even managed to convince them to move here, they're gone now but will be back next week with a u-haul that we'll help unload..wink wink), had an unschooler gathering up in roan mountain, then came home for some more hanging out, a little asheville trip to see more friends, and then a birthday/anniversary potluck party at our house. it's been a wild ride and in the midst of it all, scotty lost his job. i am grateful to my friends and family right now for their support and love. here are some slide shows to look at in case you've got an entire day with nothing else to do but look at pictures...because there are a ton...enjoy!!

"The Ren's"..that just cracks me UP!:) Literally. Ok, no more jokes about ribs or cracking anything.
o.u.c.h.

I had so much fun on Halloween with all you crazy peeps. What a crazy, fun, busy, wild month. Good times.

I'm so glad to hear you back on the blogging trail - I've missed your voice! Sorry to hear about Scotty's job; let us know if there's anything we can do to help, 'k?

Thanks for all the great ARGH pictures...it really took me back. I do think we must have altered the universe and actually been at two completely different gatherings at times though :)
So sorry about Scotty's job. I hope this closed door reveals a brilliantly bright window that needs to be opened.
