It has been forever since I last blogged! We've been so busy finding a house, moving in, and now playing host to my sister and her family. Leslie and I have been having fun talking, planning for the upcoming school year, and checking out the things to do around here in Virginia and D.C. I have several blogs worth of pictures to write about, but I thought that I would start with the event freshest in my mind. We made a special trip to the Montgomery County fair for the purpose of getting our kids' portraits done by an amazing artist. He has done portraits for my friend Kate in the past, so I knew how talented he was, but I was still amazed as I watched my childrens' faces emerge from his little piece of charcoal.
