That September Day

First of all, I want to take a moment to remember all of the lives that were lost on September 11, 2001.  
I will never ever forget where I was when I heard the news about the first tower being hit by the plane then when I heard about the second tower- the world stopped.  I was in my senior year, or fourth year ;), of college at the U of A and I had just started dating Flint.  I do not recall whether or not classes were cancelled, but I am pretty sure that most people deemed themselves excused from class.  I went to Flint's house and we were glued to the television all day and into the night.
I will never forget hearing stories of the victims unfold and how real the situation became. I will never forget the pride that it brought back to our country.  I will never forget understanding what it meant to be BRAVE.  That day is day that I will remember the rest of my life.
Thank you to those who serve our communities and thank you to those who so bravely serve our country.  Your sacrifices do not go unnoticed.

What else has September brought our way?!?!
Cilla started back to "school" one day a week and it has been wonderful for both of us!  Here is my little school girl with her backpack and her lunch box!  Sniff.  She loves her day out away from mommy and mommy gets lots done!  She took a 1 1/2 hour nap her first day.  First of all, let me congratulate her teachers on successfully getting her to sleep.  She slept in the stroller (if she slept at all) at Mother's Day Out in Waco!  Secondly, thank you sweet ladies for loving on my baby one day a week.  She is always so happy when we pick her up!
This is just one of the activities that I never thought I would give in to...But I HAVE!  Letting my baby play in the kitchen sink!  She is happy and hey, that is all that matters some days!

I have lots to catch up on.  We have had lots of company and have loved hanging out with our old friends and loved making new friends! 
The weather has been beautiful here in NWA and Starbucks has the Pumpkin Spice Latte now!   
Fall, I am ready for you!
Hope your September is off to a good start!
