But this renewed interconnectedness means we have some catching up to do.
Firstly, we have a little old NEWS to take care of. I think all of you already know, but we are expecting our third little one just before Christmas. Reagan and Maddie are VERY excited. They like to toss out name suggestions like "Strawberry Shortcake" and "Belle". It's also brought about some great questions about where babies come from and how they get out. I dance around conversational landmines like that all the live long day. We had an ultrasound several weeks ago and found out we are having a... JUST KIDDING! My Mom is going to yell at me. Anyway, we do know what we are having but we are not telling anyone. Not even our children so please don't pester them for information. They know nothing.
We had a nice summer, though it was awfully hot. We didn't take any big vacations, which was kinda nice. I, for one, am longing for the cooler temperatures of fall. We celebrated Brian's Dad's 60th birthday party one weekend. We also hit up Adventureland with my whole family one super hot day this summer.
Reagan started kindergarten a few weeks ago. She was very excited to go and even rode the bus like a big kid. I stifled a sob as I helped her up the steps of the bus, and when I turned around, Maddie was quietly whimpering. Oh man. We were both kinda sad for a while. But we were very happy to welcome our big girl back home again. Reagan loves school, loves her teacher, and often comes home with nifty stories to tell us.
