A year and half later, she added one more to the bunch.
Friday the boys leave the only non-family member who has ever kept them and start "big boy school" for the first time on Monday morning. It's exciting and scary all at the same time.
All three boys will be in separate classes...the three who have spent no more than a day apart here and there when sickness kept one or two home with Nana or Granny Meg.
It's so hard for me to imagine them walking into different classrooms when I am so used to seeing them walk up the stairs to Heather's house...together.
It's even harder for me to find the words to thank her for all that she has poured into our children.

# 2 and 3 of the list of 20 or so things were related to Obama's address to students today.
A couple of quotes caught my attention:
In the past week, news of Obama's speech had upset some parents.
"Thinking about my kids in school having to listen to that just really upsets me," suburban Colorado mother Shanneen Barron told CNN Denver affiliate KMGH last week, before the text of the speech was released.
Florida Republican Party Chairman Jim Greer accused Obama last week of trying to "indoctrinate America's children to his socialist agenda."
I do not understand all the fuss BEFORE anyone even heard the speech (or read it). I think that this sort of flippant attitude and disrespect for our country's President is ridiculous and embarrassing.
The speech turned out to be a call to study hard, do well in school, and do your best...certainly things that Obama has done...as painful as that may be for some to admit.
Sleeping beauty!Nana and the boys!This is a 50 year old turtle. Did you know that these turtles live to be 110+ years old and continue to grow throughout their lives???
Lovebirds...after all the years. :)
