Happy 9th Birthday

Happy Birthday to Audrey

You are brave

Completely silly

So pretty

And all play and no work (but we love you for that)

Audrey, this has been likely the hardest year of your little life.
You have learned that you are brave and that you can do hard things.
Onward to age 9, it's gonna be the best one yet!!

Back to School

Well it's that time, back to school.

I told the girls that the theme of this year is Brave.
This little girl is kicking Anxiety's butt.  
Brave talk is absolutely happening on a daily basis and this year is going to be her best year ever. 

Cecelia is starting middle school.
Bravery comes to her because it is so hard to start something new.
She is excited and ready.

Here's to the school year.  Let's make it a good one, in school and certainly out of school!!

And Mommy will think of the two of you as I finish work, put my feet up and enjoy 2 hours of peace and quiet before one of you gets home.

30 years

It's been 30 years and in a bizarre coincidence at the beginning of this swim season I had a former babysitter approach me.   I did not remember her but she has a daughter on that team her at one point went to school with Celia.  She said "how is your Mom?" and then "how is your Dad?".   I found myself having to share that he died with this woman.  First time in likely 30 years.

In anycase, I hate this day.  Today is very busy, barely have a chance to breath busy.  These past 2 weeks have stunk but it's life and I will take it anytime.  To have the privilege to have this family life is not lost on me at all.  We fought to get our girls and know the blessing of having us all together.

This loud, hyper, teenager keeps us very busy.  
She's amazing and learning how to navigate life when you have A LOT of opinions.

These two are still best friends.  They might argue but they always come back to each other.
The little one is learning the meaning of being brave and has been working hard.  

The swim season has flown by and is nearly done.  We are headed to leagues again and excited to see what happens to these two in the water.

Another year.

Last Day of School

First Day vs Last day
I would say Celia wins on the how much did you grow contest!


It's been a year.  Honestly looking through the elementary school years, this has been the hardest emotionally for both girls but they had the best teachers.  I finished out the school year realizing that our focus this year was never on academics at all.  Celia of course has never ever had issues in that category but Audrey has always gone into summer a little bit behind.  This summer BOTH of my girls are going into the summer I think ahead of the game.  But don't worry I am already putting together their summer work!!  

Thank you Mrs. Korb and Thank you Mrs. Sciola!!
