We had two natural disasters last week... luckily both mild.
1st: Earthquake on Aug 28th: my very first time experiencing any kind of earthquake. It registered 5.8 in VA. I was in the basement switching laundry when I felt the house shake... I thought the girls were jumping or had tipped over some furniture in the room above me. I didn't realize it was an earthquake until Greg called me from work, saying he had felt it there, too.
2nd: Hurricane Irene... usually we get big storms whenever there is a hurricane at the coast, but not this time. Just some gusty wind on Saturday.
more for our 5 on Friday...
3. This week C told me "You're not a lady, you're a Mom!"
4. Another coversation with C..."When I go to college at Indiana I will very very miss you. You can come visit me and we'll go to the beach at Indiana."
5. Went to preschool "open house" this week for C and SJ. I almost lost it during C's orientation... a mixture of being so excited for her, so glad she'll be in good hands, (she has a great teacher) and knowing this is the beginning of her growing up.
