The Quarterly Blogger

"Mama, you REALLY need to do a new blog post."

"Mama, why don't you do a new blog post about __________."

"Mama, WHEN are you going to do a new blog post????"

My sweet daughter has been giving not-so-subtle hints about how SLACK I have been this summer with the blog. We were very busy and out of town a lot the first part of the summer and I was just plain lazy and uninspired the last part of the summer. I have still been keeping up with our heart buddies, though.

As all you heart families know, in the CHD world that we live in, no news to blog about is good news. Zach is doing very well in terms of his heart. His last echo showed only a trace leak in his mitral valve and excellent function otherwise. He is running circles around all of us and growing like a champ. There has been nothing much to report.

Nonetheless, I have been a slack mommy --- not taking pictures much and not recording the precious memories of the summer of 2011. There are no good excuses, really. Now that school is back in session, I have even less time to spend at my computer, so I guess I will just rename myself "The Quarterly Blogger."

Rebecca helped me by uploading some pictures to document our latest big milestone... Back to school!

School supplies are packed in the...

...bookbags, and...

...the lunch boxes are packed, too.
She is ready for 8th Grade, and...

...he is ready for Kindergarten!
He couldn't hold his bookbag up!:)

My two students!

It is so hard to believe that our firstborn is starting her last year of middle school! It is even harder to believe that our baby is starting 5K! Where does the time go??? We are so thankful for God's many blessings thus far and thank Him for what He is going to do during this school year!

We hope you are having a wonderful start to the school year too!
