Yes Virginia, there was a June

I just forgot to blog. A lot. Again. Oops.

It's just that the surgeries took a bit more out of me than I expected, and once you get away from doing this for a bit...well it's hard to get back on track.

Many things have happened, but I never know where or how to catch up, start again, blah blah blah. So here is the deal. I will blog today. Then I will blog over the next couple of weeks things that have happened over the past month, then hopefully I will have caught tup and will keep up.

Today I got to play catch up with my friend Jen - it too has been way too long since we hung out with the kids. When they moved away last year (all of four blocks) I knew our daily time together would no longer be the same, but reality is - when you don't live next door to each other, it's a lot more challenging to fit in the time.
Having said that, meeting at the water park today was like no time passed at all. Braydon and Brad embraced each other with the biggest best friend hug possible. My heart melted. I had hoped that they would remain friends, but worried that a year apart in school may have changed that. It did not.
Rachel and KJ also got a long, and for them, their's is the relationship that has grown. Now that Rachel is three, they play with each other and enjoy each other's company much more.
Back to our place for a hot dog lunch with popsicles for dessert - it was a perfect summer day. Now we are off to watch some baseball and enjoy these warm summer nights

I hope you are feeling better. You did go through a lot in such a short period of time.

I must say that K looks so much like you in that last picture and B seems to have grown so much in a month.

PS - thanks for the post.
