Let's try that again!
As you can see, blogging and I were not an instant hit. So, I am going to take another stab at it, and try to be a tad more dedicated this time around. (It won't be hard to top one entry!) I actually did have a freeservers site a couple of years ago, so I am not totally out of the loop. Lately though I have been feeling guilty for enjoying the blogs of my friends while contributing zip.
So the Burke bunch is busier than ever and so excited for fall (our favorite season) to be setting in here. We are in the middle of soccer season (Tanner), preschool (Andrew), and trying to walk (Margaret). I pulled out our Fall decorations last night and you would have thought is was Christmas morning. Everyone, including Margaret, got into the pumpkin spirit by digging through our boxes and hauling out flashlights, scarecrows, and bats -oh my!
Jason is working as a sales engineer for an electric distributor. Learning the ins and outs of this industry is a good challenge for him. As with any new career, this first year is keeping him hopping.
I am up to full-time mothering. You all know that includes a lot of driving, cooking, baby-rocking, birthday-partying, and a little time-outing too. So, I gave myself a big treat and attended Time Out for Women in St. Louis last weekend. It really was worth it. I especially loved Jason Wright, the author of Christmas Jars and Wednesday Letters; Hillary Weeks, I bought her new album and am loving it; and Cherie Call, a young mother and singer/songwriter with a real voice. I had attended a Time Out before and enjoyed it, but there was something different this time. The day just seemed to give me something I had been lacking. It made me realize how blessed I am to have the wonderful family that I do, and that I can try a little harder to be a better wife and mother.
So that is the Burke bunch in a nutshell. Leave a comment and let me know if this is worth the effort.
