"Me and my shadow...

We're closer than pages that stick in a book. We're closer than ripples that play in a brook..." that's me an my shadow Bo.

Since the older kids have gone back to school it has just been me and Bo. Wherever I go, she's there. Whenever I sit, she sits on my lap. Whenever I do just about anything, she is right there by my side. I have never read so many books, played with dolls so long or talked about whatever 2 year-olds like to talk about as I have these last few days. It must admit that it has been tough to get a lot of work done, but if I put all the duties of the day aside for a moment to spend with her it is worth it (I just have to tell my mind to chill and quit looking at the dirty dishes or the messy floor until naptime).

I can't believe that our kids are old enough that we only have ONE at home!!! *So* crazy! And, even crazier that you guys have already started school!! Addy looks like the cutest kindergarten kid EVER...!!

I'm glad that you're blogging, too. It softens the blow of 'losing' friends when we can still see what you're up to so often.

Ditto to Hilary's 2nd comment, but I still miss you terribly, as do all people in MI who know you, I'm positive.

Time to come for a visit--bring the kids. Bo could use a playmate and I could use her "babysitting" services with Quinn. (ha ha)
