Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Wow! I fell off the face of the earth

I can't believe it's been a month since I posted. But then again, when I think about the past month, yeah...there's been no time.

Here's a brief summary of our activities since I wrote last:

On July 30 my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and in honor of the occasion we had a party for about 70 of their closest friends and family. The party was a blast, exhausting, but a blast.

So after a few days of recovery, we decided to get some serious rest in Hawaii. After 10 days of snorkeling, golf, laying by the pool, more snorkeling, tubing and building sand castles, we reluctantly came home for exactly 4 days, two soccer practices, 7 dance classes and art camp.

On the fifth day we loaded up the minivan and headed for Santa Barbara. In Santa Barbara we had our 7th annual reunion with La Nina's adoption group. Hard to believe the babies are 8 and 1/2 and in the 3rd grade. How did that happen?

We got home late from a good time in Santa Barbara and had exactly 2 days, 1 soccer practice and 5 dance classes to recover for the first day of school, which was today. The big news on our school year is La Nina and the Magster are in the same class. Our school has a 2/3 combo class and we thought...why not? Great teacher, nice kids, similar homework and it's the only time in their lives when this can happen. Yes, we're prepared for some ups and downs, but we're optimistic it will go well. If today is any indication, it will be a non-issue for the kids, but those could be famous last words.

So- I promise to write more now that life is settling down a bit. We have some great adventures planned for future. Should be lots of great material.
