Great Greeting!

Tonight I came home from my meeting and Maddie came running down the hall, "Mamma, Mamma, Mamma" and gave me a great big hug. Then Myles running, "Mamma, Mamma, Mamma" with another great big hug. And then, not to be left out, Max Rup came running, "Mamma, Mamma, Mamma" and was tacked by Myles. But he got up and made sure to get his Mamma hug in. Couldn't have asked for a better greeting!

I've gotta get some pics up and a post about our VA trip. Someday, when I have a minute - I'm sure I'll have time soon since Maddie will be in school ALL DAY! She's so excited, and I'm just plain sad about it.

Update: Despite my job, strong feelings on particular subjects, and other things, somehow they found a case for me to sit on the jury for. Expensive civil duty when you have to pay for at least 4 days of childcare that you wouldn't need otherwise. I don't mind, but I feel bad that it is bad timing for work. Interesting experience though.

Oh I feel for you on the all-day school thing, my oldest starts all day K a week from Tuesday and I am sooo sad already :( He on the other hand is so ready and excited to go. To make it better my Mom mentioned, "Once they get to school time goes by twice as fast." Waaah. It's already going by too fast.

Whew! Lots of news to catch up on with your blog! That's what vacation does to my online schedule. :o)

I'm frustrated right along with you about your court experience . . . and hoping that finalization surprises you by being that great celebration you envisioned.

The starting school thing doesn't get any easier -- the boys are entering 1st and 2nd grade, and I'm sniffling because I don't have any kindergarteners this year. Poor Anya Rashi is going to feel the full force of my mama nostalgia!
