"By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class."*

Aw, you got some DD! Very nice!

All of those things are lovely...vacation...what a concept! I would have to say after adding child #2 to our family almost 3 weeks ago now, I despair of ever having a kid not attached to me or crying. It gives me hope to think that someone with 4 kids can have some time off! Maybe in a few years...hope you enjoy every minute of it!

Kristin, don't be too optimistic : ) This was two hours while the big boys were in New Haven with H, and the baby was sleeping. I'll take what I can get, however.

AND I felt very guilty for not taking the 18mo to New haven, but what's HE care about the hallowed halls of Yale?

What'cha knittin'?

Hogwarts scarves. Seg wants Hufflepuff, and I started his first. Primo wants Ravenclaw. Altho after doing Seg's, I may change up the pattern so Primo's is not a double layer.

and Bruce, we have been sadly remiss re: church this summer. I miss it. Come fall, maybe work schedules will ease up and I can wrangle the boys there.
