I'm Back--I think

Well, I'm back from Loa and have taken a week to recover. Everything went quite well and all Mike and Vicky's kids survived. I know for sure why women don't have babies to raise after a certain age. It's too hard to keep up with them.

We potty trained Silas and his uncle Peter tried to potty train his cousin, Daniel, while the mothers were attending their mother. Vicky still had to train for #2 and I don't know how Daniel fared but that was one accomplishment at least.

We also managed to get Miriam, Thomas, and Jasper started in school. We did homework and lunches.

But I got woefully behind on birthday blogs. So I'm going to include the first half of September's birthdays in this blog.

Happy Birthday Stephanie!! I did get your card to you. Sounds like you had a great day. I remember staying with you and your folks when you were born. That was fun.

Happy Birthday, Darren!! I guess you guys were down on the Oregon Coast and probably wouldn't have seen a birthday blog anyway. Thanks for the postcard of Neskowin. We'll all have to go there one day.

Happy Birthday, Jeremiah!! I did get you your card a little late. Now I will need to go see some of your football games. Hope your season's going well.

Happy Birthday, Emma!! Do you still like your new Sunday Shoes? (I had to hide them from her because she kept wanting to carry them around all the time.) I was there for your birthday but you celebrated it when your Mom got back. Thomas and Jasper weren't sure if I would know how to make a birthday cake.

Happy Birthday, Rachel!! Now you are a big two-year-old. I'm glad your mom came to get your card. Hope you had a happy day. I keep missing your birthday because of taking care of Emma's brothers and sisters, don't I? One day I'll have to come to your house especially for your birthday.

Happy Birthday, Laura!! It was good to visit with you for awhile when you were here for the weekend. I don't remember saying happy birthday but thought about it on your day.

O.K. That catches me up for a day or two. And I need to get back in the habit of family history stories. Stay tuned but don't hold your breath.

How refreshing. I was getting tired of reading my blogs over and over because I was the only one blogging, so I was the only one with a new blog to read and it's pretty boring reading a new blog if you're the one who wrote it.

Happy birthday to all those who had birthdays!!!!

I'm glad you're back!! I wondered how long it would take you to recover.
