I just opened our blog in order to use the links to see other people's blogs and noticed that we haven't posted since Hershey...YIKES. Not going to even attempt to catch up, if you missed anything give us a call, we'll be glad to tell you all about our summer.
Just a few quick things that I thought merited posting:
Last weekend Lanie totally surprised me for my birthday with a weekend jaunt to Palm Beach without Maayan! It was our first vacation without her, and while it took Lanie a little while to get to used traveling without her (I was more used to it from the summer), we had a VERY relaxing & restful weekend, which was very nice! Not to worry, Maayan had a GREAT time with my parents, and according to all reports, my parents had a good time too. If they're lucky, we can make this a regular arrangement.
Maayan is in SAR's 3 year-old nursey now and loving it. And as expected, Lanie and I are also loving it so far, especially relative to Maayan's old place!
This shabbat, my Mother ran off to Maine to have a mini-reunion with some college friends of hers, so my Father came to stay with us for Shabbat. Everyone behaved for the most part, and a good time was had by all.
A couple quick Maayan stories to share:
The other day when Lanie and Maayan were on their way to school, there was some traffic. Lanie honked once and exclaimed her frustration. Maayan said, "Mommy, you have honk a lot a lot of times if you want them to move." (I didn't get it exactly right, but that was the jist).
(This is Lanie's proof that Maayan needs to get out of NY)
For all those on the picture distribution lists, not to worry, August will come soon, maybe even before September is over!
That's it for now. Here's to hoping we can get back on the wagon and start posting more now that we're getting back into a normal-ish rhythm.
