So summer turns into Autumn and our gang potters along. Lenny has started school which has had it's ups and downs but seems to be settling (although I feel we are now on a hamster wheel that never stops turning and you can never get off. Sigh.) Maurice skips along to his own beat and gets funnier and funnier by the minute and Hope's red hair is rather telling of her personality - beautiful and charming but full of fire! As for Ru and I no news of note - furiously keeping balls in the air and trying to keep a smile on our faces! Not always succeeding....!
