As I mentioned, I enjoyed a much needed break during the week of Spring Break, but I'll be honest I'm having a hard time getting back into the routine of writing and blogging.

Currently, I have several posts in the works and looking forward to sharing them with you once they're ready.   In the meantime, I thought I'd share the recent places you can find This Journey Our Life around the web.  

A guest post 

I guest post regularly for one of my favorite websites, Different Dream, a gathering place for parents of children with special needs. This post shares a recent victory for Cami, allowing her to make another stride towards independence.  

Link love 

 My friend, Laine at It's Just Laine, shared my 100 Ways You Know You're A Special Needs Mom post as part of her recent favorites list. I appreciate the kind words she had to say about it and I know as a mom to both a child with complex heart defects as well as former preemie she relates to much of it.  

I am honored that another friend, Erin at Naturally Erin, also shared the list as part of her Best of the Web post . I loved hearing her thoughts on it and am thankful for her kind words.

A Youtube video 

Recently, Cami had a field trip to the Kennedy Center and since then has repeatedly requested to hear Fanfare for the Common Man (Copland). On Sunday, she she kept trying to play her version of it on the piano (focusing mostly on the percussion parts) so Rudy decided to help her out by playing the brass lines. Below is a video of their impromptu performance of the song:
