Maren's adventure, Katrina Day.

Good morning, it is Sunday.

This morning Maren and I were up super early to take her to the airport. Super early means on the road by 4:45 am. It was actually surprising how many cars were out and about at that time. Currently Maren is in route to Lewisville Texas to teach a workshop on Early Literacy to the library system her friend Jim works for. She will be teaching tomorrow, then flying home tomorrow night. How's that for a quick trip?

We have plenty of plans of our own. And if you ask the boys, they all include sleeping all day. Actually we need to organize and label school supplies, shop for shoes for the boys and basically just kick back and enjoy the last few days until school starts on Wednesday. And if school isn't enough, we will be back into two soccer practices plus a game for each Preston and Hansen each week, along with Piano lessons starting back up for Lillie and Hansen, and Lillie is going to try gymnastics again...not to mention homework and me working again! Phew, bring on the full calendar!

And for those fine folks who reads this blog for their news coverage rather than just any conventional news media, today is the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. On the MSN home page you can read stories of five years after Katrina sandwiched between NFL players to watch, and who might be up for an Emmy. Or you could check out my aunt's picture blog, "angels and people/ life in New Orleans" at http://susannapowers.blogspot.com/

See you tomorrow.

Thanks Julian! We made it through the 5th anniversary of the storm. And I hope those hurricanes in the Atlantic just stay out there. Love, susanna
