I read this funny article by Brook J. Sadler called My Ultimate Facebook Post and it hit the nail on the head. I sometimes feel this blog is pointless. As the author points out who cares if my 95 year old grandma has a great garden, who cares if I saw a caterpillar, who cares if my daughter loves a dog and who cares if my other daughter was cute when she fell asleep in a big brown chair. Why do I spend so much time looking at other people's lives and their two legged cats? I guess that's why I'm not very tuned into social media.
And yet I'm ambivalent (like I am about so many things - ahem - living in Switzerland). I think my blog makes me slow down and appreciate the little things of life and that feels healthy. My blog is a good record and it lets me be sentimental. I love looking back at old photos and seeing when my girls were chubby babies. Also I love reading the comments I get.
So without further ado here's what we've been up to:
Brian is back on his bike enjoying himself and (as promised) descending off those mountains carefully.
