Braids and Cannonballs? Where does the time go?

To put it as simply as possible, I have decided to recucitate this blog. It occured to me when taking photos and videos on my family's last trip, to Riviera Maya, Mexico; where else would a video of Sasha, not yet three-and-a-half, flipping into a pool (with no instruction, and certainly no encouragement) be appreciated? This kid is amazing. And I can't even attribute it to the genes of the family.

Sasha has blossomed into a very energetic, albeit bossy and picky, pre-pre-schooler. She has enough personality for the whole family. I keep wishing I had a journal with me to write down the things she says. But leave it to her to get up and dance like crazy to the Top 20 Michael Jackson Videos special on MTV; we'd expect nothing less of her.

In the coming days, I'll certainly post more pictures and videos from the past several months. As unbelievably excited as I am to start at Smith this fall, I regret having to leave her, to say the least. I want to make my current time with her count and keep a close record of our time together, which I hope to continue in college during my visits home.

Happy 4th of July everyone! (And on that note, a special happy birthday to Carsten, my youngest brother; I can't believe he's 10!)
