It feels like a thousand years since I have posted here.
A lot has been happening on Annie street.
People are getting bigger, taller I mean, and more mature.
I find myself wondering how these little humans grew so fast
and how I relate to them as they are now.
Rohan is approaching 11.
This is a magical age for humans.

delighting in herself and her accomplishments.
My boys deserve that.

This week I begin making it official.
Paperwork, here I come.
