“Courage conquers all things: it even gives strength to the body.” Ovid

I’m really enjoying my brother and sister-in-law’s (belle-sœur) visit, even as I must admit, it makes both my husband and me a bit nervous to watch my sister-in-law bounce our baby because his neck jostles so much we’re afraid she’ll break it, but trusted assistance at this time is so appreciated. 

Thank the fates that they were here, too, when my left breast dried up. 


July 5: results!

and congratulations (and commiserations) to all those who get their bac results today.
