Same deal as the last post - been a busy summer and busier start to fall. Lots of sun, lots of fun, enjoyed seeing friends and family - looking forward to getting settled in the school year routine. Kristie will be joining all 3 boys at Marymount this year as an assistant in the pre-K class which is very exciting for us, but another adjustment. Lincoln is psyched to be joining the big guys at the same school and riding the bus, and the older guys are being good sports about it.
In other news, after years of window shopping and a lot of soul searching Bill decided to take a job in Afghanistan working with local Afghan authorities near Kabul that will start around July 2011. The rest of the family will probably move back to Vermont for that year, and from there we are looking at the possibility of a tour in Montreal.
Hope all of you are well - and please (seriously) book your visit early, spots are going fast!
Enjoy the pictures, we cherish the memories that go with them...
