I've finally finished downloading, organizing, and renaming all my pictures from the summer, so over the next few days I'm going to try and catch up a bit during naptimes. Not that I expect all you readers to care about the details of my past summer, but I do it mostly for my own record keeping.
But I'll start with this little tidbit from a few days ago.
Hattie's friends Juliet and Callie came over for a swim in our inflatable pool the other day. Hattie is slowly remembering that they are her friends - the nine week break from Texas has clouded her memory. They enjoyed splashing each other, and Hattie actually stayed outside with them instead of coming to search for me. Once they left she was constantly asking for "Et" and "Ca-ee." We get together every week with Callie and Juliet, who are both very close to Hattie's age. And I get to enjoy a few hours with Chelsea and Kristina, two girls who are lifesavers here in Lubbock. I'm glad to be back where I am surrounded with wonderful friends.
