to be honest, i don't know how to start this.
other than to say...what is my deal with meeting bloggers these days?
this one was different, though.
perhaps you're familiar with my children's involvement with ECI? you're not? well, it seems that neither of my children had any interest in speaking "on time." which is funny. seeing as big h talks literally non. stop. all the time. every day. sun up. to sun down. every waking minute, the boy is talking.
it just took him a while. a LLLLOOOOONNNNNGGGGG while. stubborn, i guess. (cough, cough. understatement.)
and goo? same thing. however, she's blossomed into a little talking flower herself.
anyhoo. during our second go-around with ECI (with which we are now finished), we met a lovely girl named krista. who was our early intervention specialist. she has since left the organization for a new career. but when she was leaving us, she mentioned that she had a fellow client that she believed i might enjoy. and would it be alright to give her my email address?
sure. no problem.
we've emailed several different times, back and forth. and i thought, "well she seems like a nice girl."
until i actually met her.
and LOVED her. seriously. i called buz, my mom, and my mother-in-law to tell them all about my "new little friend," (as buz has referred to her).
our list of similarities include but are not limited to the following: we both love Jesus, drive 4Runners, love Dr. Pepper, love the Office, "do" photography, were in the social work field, and are stay at home moms to 2- and 4-year-olds.
the odds of us being friends? um, i'm say pretty decent.
and she happens to be beautiful. please. go look. see?
so krista, oh ECI girl. thank you. thank you for setting us up. we're so grateful.
oh. and of course, just some pics from the very hot afternoon.
