A picture of Micah and his favorite kindergarten friend, Mary.  His teacher sent this photo to me and said they are just so cute together.  They are on the same bus and when they arrive at school Mary gets off and waits for Micah to get off, then they walk to class together.

Happy birthday to Shawn!

Shawn turned 36 at the beginning of September.  We had a super low key family day.  Birthday presents first thing in the morning.  New sneakers, Best.  Dad.  Ever.  t-shirt, and "Just Me and My Dad" book.  The kids actually kept the presents a surprise this year.  Impressive.

I am so thankful for the day Shawn was born!  He is the perfect husband and father for our family.

School kids

All of my children are enrolled in school.  I'm partially thrilled to have 7 hours a week to run errands and get things done solo and partially ready to bury my head in sand and pretend it cannot be true.  They are growing up and I'm extremely proud of each one of them.
