my girls

Rachel and her surrogate girls on their first birthday. She gets all the love and Mark and Tina all the work! It is a loving thing that continues to happen across America.

This is one of the stories of our family. One of the things that makes us who we are. Stories abound. Our life is wonderfully loaded with links and kinks and people who alternate between piling on top of each other and running a stretch alone. I like it all. All of it. What works and what doesn't. The regularly occuring problems and messes just go to prove we are marvelously complicated humans.

This tangle of each other is satisfying. Tonight Big Steve is flipping between football and King of the Hill with Vincent - eating crazy bread and drinking iced tea. It is easy to be 'us' tonight.
