Safe and sound (newborn mentioned)

Allison Reine arrived yesterday evening, August 27th, at 5:39 pm.  She weighed 7lbs4oz and is 21 inches long.

Are you the type of blogger…?

Are you the type of blogger, who when you have something exciting to post about but can’t share the news yet, you just don’t blog? I’m totally that type of blogger. I’ve been sitting on some news for a few weeks now, but I was waiting to share it here until I announced it everywhere……

I Did Not Expect This

Well, it’s actually coming. I knew the day was approaching, but until today – Meet the Teacher Day – it hadn’t sunk in fully. I have been very excited for Troy to start school. I cannot wait to see what he learns, how he does, who he becomes friends with… I, of course, am a…
