Couldn't let the date slide by, inasmuch as I've let so many others do just that.
No mix of lame/legitimate excuses, just forging ahead.
With about eleventy million things to catch up on, I begin with some of the most important:
Can you believe I get to say the words, "this is the quilt I won from Gina!"? I still can't believe I get to say those words, and I always refer to it as 'Gina's quilt' because I haven't gotten my head around the fact that I could call it my quilt that Gina made. Dean took the photo and I realize that while he did a fine job, I'll owe you some detail shots because this is truly a thing of beauty. Gina, I can never thank you enough!
Next, I get to say that this was Dean's "best first day of school EVER," because that's what he says. Nothing better than having him so totally love his school, his teacher, his friends. And what a luxury to have Ken home with us after school to enjoy the perfect afternoon.
Even Biscuit is just happy to be alive. More soon -- I promise.
