There are going to be a few changes going on with this blog over the next couple of weeks.  Nothing too earth shattering, but you'll probably start to notice a few details here and there that will be not the same as they used to be.

Here's the deal - I've been realizing that this blog is not turning out to be what I originally intended it to be.  I thought I could blog ad nauseum about cloth diapers. Turns out, I can not.  I also thought that I could hop right in with the group of amazing food bloggers and talk about my own adventures in gluten-free eating.  Turns out, I'm not that good at taking delicious-looking pictures.

I'm not going to just stop talking about those things, because they are a big part of my world.  But there are other big parts of my world that I keep sharing on this blog, and I think its time to just be honest with myself and with you, dear reader, and make it official.

This blog is going to be morphing into what would probably be defined as a "lifestyle blog."  I'm calling it an archive-in-process of our life over these few years while Josh is getting his undergrad at ASU.

I want this blog to be a couple things - I want it to be a written story of our life as we journey through this phase of life.  And I want to hopefully be an encouragement to those reading it regularly.  In my mind, I imagine finding a bunch of other families doing the "dad's in school and mom's at home with the kids" and creating a supportive atmosphere of surviving the endless piles of homework, the tight budget, and the wondering if this is going to be worth it in the end.

And then I realize that no one is as stupid as we are.

[However, if you happen to be doing the same crazy thing, kuddos to you.  Let's lock pinkies and be stupid together!]

Anywho, here's the point - I'm going to be blogging about our life out here and about cloth diapers and good recipes I find or make up and stuff I make and about my faith and parenting things I figure out along the way... and I promise to not get boring.  The topics are widening, but they kind of were anyway.  I'm just making it official so I can move forward and quit feeling guilty about lying to you, dear readers.

    I really like the way your blog has been heading and I think your plan is a great idea. You have a gift of being able to write about all the things you mention with a serious, yet entertaining and when needed, humorous voice. You are never boring. :) Having an "archive" of this time in your life is not something you will regret. It is the same reason I do a Christmas letter every year. I see it as a short history of family life for that year.
