A special announcement October 11, 2009

We’re happy to announce that we’re expecting an addition to our family.  I am pregnant and feeling good so far but it is early still.  D is slowly wrapping his mind around the idea, it is hard when you’re in an alternate reality [Iraq] to fully know and appreciate what is happening here in the states.  The boys kind of get it but since we have been trying for so long that they sort of lost their excitement but I am sure they will be overjoyed about being wonderful brothers to a wee one.  I am due in June and as I know more, I’ll share the details…

Cyrus swinging on the swing as we wait for Solomon to get out of school.

Both Cyrus and Solomon are doing well at their new school in Kindergarten [Cyrus goes half days] and 1st grade.  I am finally getting used to the new schedule and enjoying the time to get some things done and the afternoons with Cyrus.

Been raining off and on today with a little chill to the air- I think Fall has arrived and we should all celebrate with some soup!

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” –Robert A. Heinlein
