Checking In.

Don't be looking at me like that! Would you rather me have a life or write about a non-life? With a life comes pictures. Yay, pictures! On with the show (in chronological order) ...

I got my letter from the USCIS telling me they had approved my application for citizenship. Which is not to say that I AM a citizen, just that I have an appointment on the 16th of this month. Yay?My momma came down at about mid-July for a month and I've been enjoying having her here to no end. I love having someone around to yak and laugh and play with.
A friend of a friend ... who I think may be on her way to becoming my friend also, offered to let us come to the Dallas Zoo free with her on "Texas Instruments Appreciation" day. We were quick to jump on that offer. I haven't been to the Dallas Zoo since Rhiannon was just a baby, before Brogan happened along (saying that like I have no idea how babies come about). It was sweltering hot ... but it was way fun.
Brogan also lost his first tooth that day, though WHERE the tooth ended up is still a mystery. Brogan! Where's your tooth?!?!?
I don't know, I just lost it.
Lost it where?
I don't KNOW, MOM. I LOST IT!!

Rhiannon returned triumphant from her month long eastern seaboard road trip with her Crabb grandparents, cousins, Aunt and Uncle. Triumphant simply because she had finally swarmed back into my arms. Man, did I miss her constant ever chattering little voice, sweet ever wrapping little arms, silly never making sense jokes!

Too soon after she returned I headed off for a long weekend PTA conference in Austin. Yeah, the classes were interesting, informative and ... whatever else they were suppose to be. But honestly, what it came down to - was it was a GREAT Girl Getaway. We laughed, we swam, we ate, we laughed, we talked, we giggled, we broke a few rules ...

Then, THEN we met up with my brother and his family in San Antonio - which deserves it's own post!
