We're back!

We've been here about a week already but I thought I would announce that we are officially back in "New" for the school year. I think all of us are glad to be back though it was a bit of culture shock all over again...No left turns, people stopping in the merge lane, not pumping our own gas, not remembering the security code to our front door, paying for laundry :-(, barbeques galor, multitudes of women in various stages in pregnancy, no one acknowledging your existence on the sidewalk...you know all the things we think affectionately and sometimes not so affectionately of when thinking of "New."

Classes begin in less than 48 hours and A has already missed her first day of "school" (day care) because of a 104 degree fever. Thankfully after every 4 hour dosages of baby Tylenol (yes, even in the middle of the night) her fever is slowly coming down. Yay for smooth starts right? :-)

The Larger Shame

T pointed me to this article by Nicholas Kristof. He is an Op-ed writer for the New York Times. I have loved everything I've read of his to date and this article is no exception. Check it out!
