September 2001  
School started again and a sigh of relief was heard throughout the house. Taba started the 6th grade this year. Jonathon returned for his second year in the local Head Start Program. Poor Kristopher was left behind wondering where everyone went!

I'm sure everyone will remember where they were and what they were doing when the tragedy of September 11th struck. Such massive destruction and loss of life will forever mark a turning point in our lives and our history. I hope there was no personal loss to those who are reading this ... and if there was, make they find peace in knowing so many care.
