A very short list of significant developments in the lives of my children:
- June: Going to her new, lovely little daycare—the one we weren't even going to look at because we were sure it wouldn't have any room but we asked just in case and for some magical reason it did.
- Louise: Going to her not new but still very lovely school. First grade, my my.
- June: Learning to swim—a frantic, dog-like thrash (stay clear!), but swimming nonetheless.
- Louise: Learning to jump off the diving board. (Louise has many wonderful qualities. Brazen physical daring is not one of them. This was a major accomplishment.)
