Thank you to all of you who have been so patient over the last few weeks. I have definitely been in a bit of a blogging slump. I don't even know if slump is the right term. It's more like blogger's block. I've done a lot of reflecting and come to the conclusion that I'm just not loving the direction I decided to take the blog this year. While learning about new places is fun and exciting, it doesn't seem to be enough to keep Eva's (or my) attention. I think I was just too structured in what I planned for the year and then I felt trapped. So I've decided to let go of my need to plan out everything and go more with the flow. Occasionally I will still do theme weeks and the like, but now that Eva is old enough to initiate her own ideas and select things that interest her, I'm going to let her be my guide. Throughout the next week I'll be sharing some activities we've done that I felt didn't "fit in" with my plans and therefore didn't post. (I swear, we haven't been sitting around staring at the walls lately!) Thank you again for your support and I can't wait to be back in the blogging world!
