Just checking in with everyone. I get the cast on my arm off in a few days and it will be replaced by a...thing. I am obviously not a doctor. But it will be a nice change. The girls are still loving school and everyday they bring me home charming examples of their work. Anna now has the multiplication tables mastered as far as 10. She's quite proud. Aly is still dealing with the insurance companies handeling the issues surrounding the burning down of her house. It's a long process, but she's doing rather well. I can help her with some things, but a lot of it is just listing the items that were lost and in that regard, I can't offer much assistance. Still, she's taking time off work and things will be dealt with soon. Hope, the newest addition to our household, is fitting in wonderfully. She's enjoying her new school and everything seems to be going well. Liz and Emma are quite enjoying being parents and they're running around the place glowing. Not literally, as then I'd worry.
