We're Special

This is our friendly way of saying, "We've had Hand Foot and Mouth Disease! Aren't we lucky?"

And this is my happy way of saying, "This is how a whole week with quarantined children makes me feel."

You know how some people like olives with pimientos in them? Or jalapenos? Or even little onions?

This is what my girls like:

Those, for the uninitiated, are raspberries--with capers stuffed in them. It's a new culinary sensation.

Summer 2011

Yes, I know summer isn't technically over until later this month, but I can smell fall in the air. We've had a very fun summer and I'm sad to see it go. It was also very eventful: Evie lost part of her tooth and gained a scar on her forehead, I lost most of my hair in a drastic new cut, Regis started business school, and Abby has started joy school and grown like a weed. This fall promises to be busy, and probably stressful, as Regis comes to grips with his future and I come to grips with a student budget. Overall, though, it's getting better and better all the time.
