Folks say that when you haven’t been blogging for a while, you shouldn’t explain or apologize, you should just get back at it. So I’ll do just that, beginning tomorrow. I could make lots of excuses related to our move from Iowa to Colorado: a new home, a new community, new schools, a new job, and a new educational policy environment. But the bottom line is that I’ve dropped the ball. Instead of blogging nearly every single day, I’ve only posted 10 times in the last 5 months and that’s not okay with me. I didn’t start this blog and maintain it for 10 years just to let it fizzle out. If I’m going to shut this thing down, you’ll know!

So get ready. I’m back…
