Well, I haven't posted anything for a while but for a pretty good reason, I think. We welcomed our third daughter, Gabrielle Elyse, into our family on March 10th. She's doing wonderfully and I've spent the last month in a state of newborn bliss - with all the sleep deprivation and good baby smells that it entails. I've had some time to think about Momma Owl and though I debated taking a longer sabbatical, I have some science activity ideas I'd still like to share and I appreciate the creative outlet that Momma Owl has become for me over the last six months. I may change things up a bit and incorporate some quicker activities that may better fit my (and maybe yours, too!) family life right now. We'll see how it goes... Wish me luck - and some sleep!
