We're usually not big fans of collages, but given the event, thought it wouldn't be so bad. Click on the picture itself to see it bigger.

Middleman Reunion 2011

Some shots from the Middleman Reunion...
Night one Emma slept in the car with Sarah. The kids were supposed to sleep on the trampoline. Isaac decided he needed Mom, so he slept in the van too (although he slept on the trampoline alone Sunday night...go figure)
Cousins Cozy and Asypnn were inseparable all weekend.
Popi has it all under control...Sarah and Matthew are only 3 months apart, give or take.
Ethan was fearless. Only problem was when he forgot he didn't have his life jacket on and jumped with his cousins...
Silly was hot, almost 100 degrees. They were getting their hair wet until they got the okay to get in the pool by mom.

September 11th

I had a moment today while the kids were resting to reflect on today - the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. I remember the feelings I had that morning. Rob and I had only been married for 3 weeks. I was in definite shock. Going to school in Los Angeles and the potential of another attack on a highly populated location, I always had my eye to the sky when an airplane flew overhead. It lasted for about 6 months (although still today if an airplane is flying low and I don't know of an airport around, I get nervous).

I am grateful for the blessing I have of living in the United States. For all the turmoil, political, economic, and otherwise, I am thankful for my family and the opportunities we have here. I hope we maintain a healthy sense of gratitude for those who serve around us.

1st Day of School

Here are our Kindergartener and Second Grader. The first day of school is always bitter sweet.

Isaac's first day of school was more of a meet and greet. Here he is by his apple. Last year the district moved from a half-day, every day Kindergarten to a full day two days a week and every other Monday. The jury is still out on how the schedule will work.

Cosette loves that she can take herself to school on her scooter. It's easy getting to school...coming home is the hard part.
