It's time for a little update around here at The Arena Update.  Considering that the photos in the header are now more than a year old and we no longer can "update" anyone on the town of Arena, I figured it is the perfect time to tweak a few things.

Here's what you can expect.

1.  Name Change
I want to keep the word "Arena" just for the sake of continuity, but I had to figure out how to make it a bit more.....metaphorical.  So, the new name of the blog will be Arena Five.  Under this roof, I feel like there are days when I live in a gladiator arena.  There's dirt everywhere, someone is always trying to kill someone else, and nobody really gets too riled up unless someone sheds blood.  Ah, the joys of raising sons.  So, life is a battleground....and we're on the front lines.  And since there are five of us, it seemed to fit.  Welcome to our arena!  (Good news: the website address will still bring you here!)

2.  A New Look!
You know us girls; we'll take any excuse to get a makeover!  I knew I had to change the name and the header, but I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to blog design, so there wasn't much I could do to tweak my design.  I've got a new design on order and I'm really looking forward to seeing the look.

3.  Some Hiccups.
Of course, these things don't usually happen as smoothly as we would like.  I apologize in advance for any wonky mishaps that may occur during the change-over.  Just bear with me and we'll get get it worked out!

Yay!  So excited!  The new design should be up and running in about a week or so!
