Sorry for the long outage to the blog. It was not intentional and I don't plan on giving up. However, I've been trying to get to work earlier in the morning so I can come home earlier in the afternoon. This has cut into my normal blogging time. I'm going to look for ways to work the blog into the daily routine.

One of the reasons I haven't written is that there has not been too much of note lately. Noah is enjoying his return to preschool. Amanda likes having her Monday through Thursday mornings free. She is still exchanging babysitting with a friend on Friday mornings too.

Today Noah completed day 99 of Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Lessons. He will get some kind of reward when he finishes it tomorrow. He is doing really well with it. We were at Sam's a week ago and he asked me what "gift cards" means when he saw the display selling gift cards.

Lily is enjoying third grade. She has a little trouble with the boy who sits next to her. It seems that Christian Cooper has a crush on her. I saw him at the open house this past Wednesday and his mom told me that he has a crush on her. I told her that we knew, but that Lily didn't believe it. Lily is not impressed with this kid. So far, Lily does not have much use for boys who struggle with keeping the rules. That's just fine with us though.

Tomorrow is the first meeting for our church plant. This is where I should invite you to join us if you're in the area, but frankly we're not quite ready yet. We could use a few more weeks to iron out the bugs. But by mid-October we should be in pretty good shape.

That's the high level of what is going on with the Chamberlains as of late. I will try to write more consistently.
