So THANK YOU. Thanks so much to all you sweet readers who donated. We're currently making the rounds in Kansas and it's always funny to find out who reads the blog. I'll see good friends who (apparently) don't spend hours reading blogs online and have to be caught up on our lives (which I don't mind at all--then I get to tell all our stories to fresh ears!) And then I'll meet new friends at weddings who will confess that they read my blog--hi Katie! It's just so fun. Blogs. If I've said it once, I've said it a million times. You should blog. It connects you to great, great people and is a fantastic way to keep a record of your lives. You'll never regret blogging. And sometimes it pays off big and you get to help sweet little boys have their feetsies fixed.
And a few quick pictures of our time so far in Kansas... first, me and the Heidi, the pretty bride. She and Alex are dear friends from K-State and Boston who finally got married. You might remember them from here.
We had lunch with Hillary, Rhonda and Allie (not pictured) and had a few minutes to catch up on all their lives. I love seeing high school friends--I'm so blessed to still have girls I love so much from so long ago.
We're currently in Lawrence with our friends Riley and Julia, who used to live in the DC area and abandoned us for the homeland. Alison popped by with teeny Dinah and we MIRACULOUSLY got a picture with all our kids looking at the camera.
How cute are they? They played very sweetly together and were generally adorable. Oh sweet babies.
