Welcome to Genevieve's life!

Welcome to Genevieve's blog! My goal is to post a photo everyday to remember and document just how fast she is growing up. We don't want to miss anything!

Day at the Park with friends

This afternoon Mommy invited your friends Abby and Emma to come to the park with us. We had a good time playing and going down the slide. Your wagon with the beautiful red top attracted a lot of attention from the other kids! We had a swarm around us at one point, all wanting to ride in your wagon. We had a fun afternoon, hopefully next time Zach can go with us.

I would be amiss if I didn't mention that today is the 10th anniversary of September 11th. Having been to ground zero it is hard to imagine what it must have been like on that terrible day. You will never know that you use to not have to take off your shoes through security, be able to meet people at the gate and be able to carry bottles of shampoo on board. On 9/11 America, which was largely immune from the kind of terrorism that many people all over the world have long experienced, things changed. Things changed in ways I can't even begin to explain to you Genevieve. The wars, the Patriot Act, the radical divides that have gripped this nation, it is hard to even fathom. I shutter to think what horrible tragedy may shape your generation and it's impact on you. Lives were lost, hero's rose and life has changed. 

In memory of all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. 
You are not forgotten.
