It's been a while, but I assure you that I have not forsaken you forever. You see my Uncle Joel is getting married to my Aunt Etsuko soon, so we have been preparing and doing lots of fun stuff for that. Also, it is testing season at Mom's school so her schedule has been off, and she hasn't felt like blogging much lately. In fact, she hasn't picked up her camera much lately either...perhaps I should check her for a fever. ;) Hope to visit you all soon.
