As Elijah and I reached the door to the grocery store, the piece of paper I'd been clutching in my hand went flying 15 feet into the air, torn from me by a wind gust.

I laughed.

And then Elijah and I, hand in hand, went on a chase through the parking lot for my dry cleaning slip. As we ran, the paper stuck to a lamppost. Soon it was only a few feet away. Just as I bent down to pick it up, again it would be blown far out of reach.

I thought I was in a comedy routine. I was secretly hoping someone was watching on the security cameras. It was hilarious, like someone had tied a string to my paper and kept yanking it just out of reach.

I finally caught up to the slip of paper, but only after traversing the entire parking lot. Elijah thought it was hilarious. 

And this is kind of how my life feels lately, like a whirlwind. I think 2011 will go down in history as the busiest year ever - perhaps one of the most fun, too. I thought things might start slowing down now that it's autumn. No such luck. September has been a whirlwind. Oh, and October is almost over too?

I thought I'd better write an update for you all lest you think we've dropped off the face of the planet.

We're still here, chasing things, laughing as we go.

Here are some of the things we've been up to while I've neglected the blog...

Elijah went back to school for his second year of preschool (he loves school).
On one of the last hot days of the year, Elijah and I took Andy to the park we'd discovered on one of our adventures.
I turned 30 (really, that can't be true because I'm only 20!).
Elijah's aunt Casey got married to Tyler (congratulations you two!). 
We celebrated the Feast of Tabernacles in Galveston Island, TX.
So, there you have it. We're still alive and well. And we've been having a lot of fun while not here in Elijahland.

Life brings us many a comedy routine. That's how we have to look at it. You know my motto...ya' gotta laugh! And laugh we do. We can cry over that piece of paper flying through our lives or laugh. Laugh we do. What an adventure! Right?! What an adventure our lives are. So laugh and love....:) Miss you! Love, MomKat
