The short take...

We're enjoying a crazy summer (already), before Kate starts Kindergarten (ALREADY!!?) this fall. Our kids are so much fun, and we are SO blessed!

We got some very exciting news yesterday- Craig and Laura (our other friends who were waiting on their overseas adoption) officially have a daughter! Zamara went to court and was approved for adoption, so she was declared to be all they have to do is go get her! So hopefully that'll be in just over a week, and we'll finally get to meet her!

Daniel flew solo (how low?) yesterday, and he said it went just great. It had been delayed for a few days due to weather, but he managed to slide in between weather systems, it sounds like. He sent us some pictures- looks very cool!

Michele and Hannah (Kyla's mom and grandma) are back from their whirlwind tour of the UK (primarily Ireland and Scotland), and just had a great time. We got some of the stories, but we can't wait to see all their pictures when they're up for Kate's birthday party!

That's right...a week from tomorrow, Kate will be 1 year old! It's just doesn't seem possible! I know all you who are parents know exactly what we mean. She is officially a toddler though; she went from tentative steps when she didn't realize what she was doing, to walking about 50% of the time (basically, until she fell, then she'd crawl), to walking nearly all the time...probably about 95% of the time now! She'll only crawl a few steps now, for instance if she's reaching for something close and she's already on the ground. She's so cute when she stands up on her own- she looks like a surfer. Or did, at least...she's getting good at it SO quickly! We're still not sure what the preschool situation will be- it looks like it may be another month or least we're hoping something opens up that soon!

Well, to all the family out there, check out our family forum (you should have received a link in e-mail, otherwise write me and ask for it)'s starting to get a bit of activity! That should be fun if it really picks up.

Well, that's it for now! TTFN!
