Today this blog is officially two years old. I knew it was some time at the start of March 2005 when I began, and just went to check. It it hardly feels like two years ago. So much has changed in that time: the boys are both adults and have finished their home education (as such). Tim is doing a degree course by correspondence, Daniel has been abroad on the MV Doulos for over a year now. And we moved from a rather tatty rental house with an enormous garden to our own relatively new house with no garden, after selling our UK house.
We still have our four cats; Cleo will be nine in the summer, Sophia and Jemima had their eighth birthday a few days ago, and Tessie will be seven at the end of the year. All middle-aged, yet they've adjusted easily and well to the changes.
We have much to be thankful for.
