The Silence is Broken

Yes, I know I haven't posted in over 3 weeks! WOW! That's been the longest I've gone since I started blogging a couple days after Maximo was born.
My excuses:
1. Work is hard.
2. Parenting is hard.
3. I am tired ALL OF THE TIME.

I often think of what I want to say or write my blog in my head as I ride my bike on the way home from school or while I'm fumbling through the grocery store, but then by the time I can sit down after Maximo has gone to bed, I've got nothing. I can barely make my Scrabble moves on my online games and make myself a cup of tea,

Unfortunately, I've gotten into a bit of a funk with many things I enjoy doing -
blogging, exercising, sometimes even being positive is a lot of work.

But we continue to trudge... The first year in a new school, new position, new country, new language is difficult. It's been a good, but sometimes challenging transition for Maximo, and this, on top of his tumultuous toddler emotions.

Anyhow, I'm back. And hopefully more consistently. Today we went to the end of the year (school year is April - March for Japanese schools) Parents' Day at Yume Club - Maximo's daycare. It was really cute. I have a ton of video I'm trying to post, but it may take another day, because it's a bit long. Here are a couple of pictures from our day:

Miho, Maximo and Evan ready to start

He jumped almost the whole time we were there.
He now jumps all the time, especially when he's
happy!
