After writing my heartfelt, thought-provoking post last night I went to bed. Today I read the encouraging comments from all of you. It made my heart glad to see the love and support. And then I really thought about it. 6 months? Really? So I counted down and up and back. And I realized that it's really only been 5 months. I totally relied on a 4th grader's arithmetic. Anna Grace said 6 months, and I believed her. So now I'm thinking we really need to work on her math skills!

If you start counting with November (November,December, January...) you DO get 6. Lots of us thought she was right, so don't feel too badly!

Haha, so funny! We're glad to have you here in the Houston area whether you've been here 5 or 6 months! :)

I thought 6 months sounded long, but then 5 months sounds too long, too, so what do I know?

I hope the kids feel encouraged, too, if they read all the comments.

Hahahah... Classic math mistake. My wife has even done that sometimes when she's counting to a specific date or month. Just repost that blog next month :)
