Back to School (FINALLY), and September 11th

I hope to return to my poor, ignored, lonely blog. It was a long summer, and yet it flew by. I accomplished little of what I had hoped to accomplish, but spent loads of time playing with the kids in the sun and the water. They all grew taller, thanks to the aforementioned sun and water (or at least that's what I'm crediting). I think I just grew wider....probably because of my lack of visits to the gym. Oh well. Time enough for that.

Today is September 11th, a day I think I will always remember. It also happens to be my birthday. Such a bizarre day to have a birthday on. It's a day to remember the horrific events of 2001, but at the same time, it's a day I'd like to enjoy. Sometimes it's difficult to do both, and not feel guilty. I gave my sister a hard time for trying to avoid giving birth to my new niece on my birthday, but I do totally get it. Instead beautiful Ainsley Elisabeth was born yesterday- a more neutral day on the calendar.

Please join me in welcoming the newest addition to the family, and my children's new cousin!

We had another new addition, compliments of my sister-in-law, earlier in the summer, but I have yet to post a picture. He's adorable as well!
