I hope you have thoroughly enjoyed seeing some of those old posts Erin dug out for this month. She did a great job selecting favorites. It reminded me of how much time and love we have put into this little blog over the past several months. I for one can attest to the fact that researching and writing up these posts have helped me become a better mom, and for that I am so grateful. Anything I can do to make my mothering skills more effective and enjoyable ranks high on my priority list. Hopefully all you wonderful readers have also reaped some benefits as you checked in from time to time. That was our original goal after all--mothers strengthening each other in our role as the primary nurturer to our children.
We have come to a decision that admittedly was very difficult. Even after the changes we made in September, we feel Laugh, Learn, Love needs a little vacation. I know, I know, we had our break in December with the re-postings. The thing is, we have to consider what is best for our families and ourselves, and right now they need our full attention and energy. (Did I mention I'm half way through 7 different moves in a 9 month period this year, oh, and I'm presently 6 months pregnant?) Unfortunately, LLL temporarily gets the cold shoulder. Don't worry though, we look at it as a perfect time to test out new projects and activities on our own, grow our stockpile of great links, and prepare for a better blog in the future. We can't say exactly how long LLL will be on hiatus, but it will probably be several months at the least. We encourage you to add us to your Google Reader list if you haven't already. That way you will know if we are back in the posting business. Untill then, enjoy what we and other mothers have contributed to this blog over the past year and keep finding ways to lovingly nurture your children every day.
Thanks so much for all you have given us. We'll see you soon.
Deneal and Erin
