The book club girls (and other friends and family) spoiled us rotten. Lola is going to be one well-dressed little girl. I hope she enjoys photo sessions...
The rest of life is humming along quietly (well, as quietly as a house full of little boys can be). Levi and I are feeling much, much better, but now it is Leif's turn to be down for the count. He is currently napping (feverishly) for the second day in a row. I'm praying that this horrible bug will have finished its course within a couple days and we can enjoy a healthy month or two!
Lessons have been happening here and there. We need to pick up the pace next week when everyone is well. But until then, we'll just take deep breaths and soak up the quiet.
And a quote for my ChocLit Guild girls, in light of our excellent discussion about The Hunger Games trilogy last night:
The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life.
It provides human beings with a sense of destination
and the energy to get started.
