The local corn maze has a different theme every year. This year it is Darwin. Hidden in the maze are different clues and information spots. It was a perfect day to go. We must have spent about three hours there. One of the guys we train with, Jason came with us again this year.
For Alana's birthday she was given the choice of a gift or going to a special event. It took her no time at all to make her decision. It was hands down..going to Cirque Du Soleil. We were given tickets to go for the first time years ago and since then she is always listening for when the next tour is in our area. It was as spectacular as always. The performers, costumes, and stage are just amazing. Another perfect day.

It just doesn't seem like eight years have passed. That day is still so clear in my mind. I can remember the first moment I heard about a plane in NYC. As the day progressed more people came into the clinic with news. That evening I picked up Alana from Grammie's and heard more. Home to see my first news reports. Snuggling on the bed with my toddler and not wanting to let go for even a moment. It took me a few years to do a tribute page about someone I had known who was on the second plane. My thoughts are with all of the victims and the ones left behind.

5th grade has begun. I wasn't ready, but the school district really doesn't care about how I feel. Alana is happy with her new bag and that's all that matters to her. Three days of school and then off for the long weekend.
Grandparents here to visit for a few days. Gives everyone a chance to relax and catch up. Lots of fires in the fire pit. The pool is starting to be less attractive with the weather starting to cool off. How does the summer vacation always get away from me?
