So, after over 2 years of dormancy, I've decided to shake the dust off the ol' Red River Rules blog. I'm doing so for a couple of reasons:
Reason #1: I am sitting through a teacher's in-service today and tomorrow. Anyone who has ever been forced to suffer through one of these things knows full well the boredom and frustration that comes through the hours of monotonous "break-out" sessions that leaving you wanting to stab your eyeballs out with an ink pen. Instead of doing violence against myself (or paying attention, I suppose), I've chosen a more constructive route and resurrecting a blog that my wife started a few years back.
Reason #2: Laura and I are about to welcome our second child into the world. Emma Katherine (or Emma Cake, as our two-and-a-half year old likes to call her) is scheduled to make her appearance on Wednesday. I was hoping that Laura would go into labor early to get me out of in-service (see above), but apparently I am not so lucky. I liked the real-time reporting that came out of this blog and the mother-blog (ednahouse.blogspot.com) during the birth of Evie Jane (see October 20, 2008 entries on each respective blog).
Disclaimer: I am making no promises about continued posting on this blog, nor am I promising to maintain the real-time updates that I spoke of above.
