Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a month since I've written a blog entry. I could say that I've been busy but the real reason is because I read my husband's blog every day (http://kiwiscots.blogspot.com/ ) and I feel a bit unworthy in my writing skills. Of course I would be letting down my 2 friends who read my blog so I decided to throw caution to the wind (and grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, etc) and continue on.
Anyway, we've been settling into a rhythm here and have passed the dreaded 6 month hump when homesickness usually sets in. For me, the start of soccer season cures most of my ailments. There is something magical about seeing your kid excel at something he loves. Soccer season brings a sense of normalcy to our lives ever since Morgan joined his first team 10 years ago. Morgan however, has decided to forgo soccer this year for Rugby so it is up to Ewan to keep this tradition going. I think he would actually prefer to play Cricket but is doing this for me. I don't have the willpower to let him off the hook. I would really miss it.
Along with soccer and Rugby, we now have break dancing. That's right, we moved to NZ and Morgan joined a crew and practices one or two times a week and has even performed at a local community fair. Who'd a thunk? To top it off, he's not bad.
