so, i got all caught up and was planning on blogging regularly last week and then...fizzle. this post was supposed to be my day out with connie, but i got sidetracked and it never got done. you can tell by the date of this post that i was going to write it last monday (august 1, it is now august 9!) but i had to break up another endless fight between the kids, and....well, here we are. i didn't take any pictures of our day out, but connie wrote up a nice blog post here.
