Day One. New Beginnings.

Writing a love letter from abroad and sending myself a bit of a journal.  Why "And Now We Are Six"?    I borrowed most of the words from the title of a poetry collection of A. A. Milne's.  For nearly ten years our Christmas cards would report that we'd had a baby or were expecting a baby in alternating years.  This year's card didn't say that, though.  In fact, we didn't even send cards year because we were in the process of moving to London, but if we'd said anything else of note this year it would have been...and now we are six. After a decade of building our family, we have blessedly come to be the amazingly, sweetly symmetrical family identical to mine as a child:  2 boys, 2 girls, and the 2 of us. And Now We Are Six.  It says to me: "Whew. The thrilling, heartbreaking, and stunning part of building our team is complete.  Hand in hand, we have graduated to another stage in our lives.  Now is the time to set sail and explore together. And the adventures have just begun."

  1. What a perfect title to your blog and wonderful meaning. Should I now say we are 6?
