So far this summer, we haven't done anything too extraordinary. Derek's had therapy. We've been to a new park. We've gone for ice cream. We've gone to the library. We went to the lake over Memorial Day. We've played board games and gone for walks and visited friends. See? Nothing special. But at the same time, it's been very special, because we've been making memories. At least, I have. I don't know if the kids will remember this stuff when they grow up, but I know I will.
I didn't even mind having both boys in my room during the thunderstorm the other night. (At least, I didn't mind until their feet were in my face...)
What has been so amazing?

(and yes, Derek was safe--the boat was anchored and I was right there with him.)
