I know it hardly seems that I write on this blog anymore, but the girls and I are just back from our week in New Hampshire with friends and family. We have hosted or been someone's company for half of August. I am a little weary, but in that happy, cram-it-all-in-before-autumn-kind of way. New Hampshire was unseasonably cold for much of the week, but we enjoyed our relief from the heat. We wore our smartwool socks, ate freshly baked cookies and curled our fingers around hot mugs of tea and coffee. Lucy didn't sleep much, and her nursing habits went berserk, so I was exhausted and hormonal. Amelia had a week of bliss playing with the Big Girls, and the weather granted us a trip to the lake on our last day. Here are a few pics, including a couple from an appearance by John Edwards that we stumbled upon.
