There are tons of turtles all in and around the lake where I run. Today the thought occurred to me that maybe I should bring Goobs down here and let him be free - is there such a thing as a turtle being too domesticated to live in the wild? He probably wouldn't get his cottage cheese out there so maybe it's not such a good idea. He's just been so active lately in his aquarium - I told Eavan to let him out and run around her room tomorrow while she's at school.
So much I want to catch you up on - hopefully you already know about everything... if so you probably know that I haven't been the same since you left. I miss the old me but I miss you more...

As Polly's Birthday is nearing this May, I thought it would be amazing if we could collect any videos of Polly, pictures, and maybe even some new memories to share with each other. I have been thinking about Polly so much lately and dreading the date that I got the phone call that she was no longer with us. I really have some anxiety about this date so I would like to overpower it with the day of her amazing birth. I want to focus on how much we laughed with Polly, how much we learned from her and how much we all loved her. Please start posting and if you need any help with blogger, putting up videos or images, let me know.

I wanted to write to say I was thinking about all of your friends, (even the ones I've never met) and wondering how they were all doing. I wanted to say I think about Heidi, Chris, Steph, the unborn baby, Mary Beth and Lew, Lindsay, April and Frank every night when I pray. This bond we all have because of you.

Polly and Frank had made an awesome DVD and sent it to us after we got back from our trip to Breckenridge in Feb. of 2006. It was such a special surprise and set to the song ''Under Pressure" by David Bowie. The kids and I have watched it several times and I have tried to download it here without success. If you've ever had that perfect trip or vacation - this was ours. Chris and I agree that it was almost magical in terms of our feelings of happiness and love in being together. I have a special recollection of one afternoon prying Polly away from Frank for a little girl time. We went down a few of our favorite runs - Polly leading the way as she was the map-reader, and then of course it was time for a break. We went to the lodge where we warmed up with some Irish coffees and girl-talk. This was our first time alone and we totally lost ourselves in conversation. I remember looking at her and having the warmest feelings for such a beautiful human being who was not only my blood, but the best friend I've ever had and will ever know.

Happy New Year seems silly. Merry Christmas...? Just as dumb.
Steph and I found out on Christmas that we are having a baby girl, due just before your birthday - May 4th.
We are going to name her Polly Jean.
Never will I stop loving you.
