I’ve hit the 32 week mark. Bria is right around the corner. So far, so good… I think after all the problems with Hanan we keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. It hasn’t. Brian (Ned’s oldest) and Kelly have decided to get married the first weekend in November so there’s alot of pressure on Bria to at least be on time. No, I am not planning on attending that wedding with a days old baby. Grandma would like to be there. She’ll be here to help with Bria.

Ray is back in Panama. We get to talk to him for about 5 minutes every day. He’s having fun with another exercise there. He’ll be Maryland for a week when he gets back. His only other exercise before Bria is in Suffolk so he should be home every night. She is going to have to hold out until at least the second week of Oct. Any time after that and we’ll be happy.

The girls are getting ready to go back to school. Arleigh will be in school all day for the very first time. I am suffering more than she is. She’s very excited. Open house is tonight. We’re going to go and try to figure out the new lunch system. Hanan will be in the same morning class that Arleigh was in last year. We love Mrs. King so we are very excited. We really thought that she would be put in the afternoon class. Now she is able to start piano too. I have to find time this weekend to go pick up her new books.

That’s it for now. I’m going to brave the wild this weekend and drive back up to Camp Idlewild for a sports day. We started the summer with Arleigh not wanting to jump off the diving board there with a life vest. We are going to finish it off with her jumping off by herself, no life vest and swimming to the ladder. Hanan will still probably only be getting her feet wet. Maybe next year…
