HAPPY BIRTHDAY... Over in China a little girl celebrated her 2nd birthday today. We are so sad that she wasn't here with us. We went out to dinner tonight at "Islands" with Aunt Pam and Aunt Jodi. After Mariah and Caeli went to Toys R Us and bought a stuffed animal and baby swing for their sister. Next year we will have a party with cake and balloons. I just wish we could have celebrated with her today.

A BEGINNING... School started today and the girls were so excited this morning. Caeli had her new Tinkerbell backpack and lunchbox as she started Kindergarten. Mariah is growing up so fast and is a "big" 2nd grader. It was a long day for Mom until she picked them up at 3:00. We stopped for ice cream and they told me all about their day.
AN ENDING... Last week Caeli finish pre-school at the day care we have been using since Mariah was a month old. It was hard to say good-bye to wonderful teachers and friends. We had all assumed that the baby would be here and we would continue to go there every day.

STILL WAITING - Each day we hope the phone will ring and no calls so far. Time is passing slowly. We celebrated Nana's 85th birthday last Saturday. The girls have gotten all their school supplies. Mariah is excited to go into 2nd grade, Caeli is a little nervous about changing schools and entering Kindergarten. I had so hoped that we would travel during summer vacation.
