my sister...

Well, this past weekend my little sister moved out.  She moved in Memorial Day 2009, hoping to stay the summer.  Then she got her AmeriCorps job, and we were lucky to have her 11 more months.

These past 14 months flew by!  It was wonderful having her in our home.  I had not lived with her more than a couple weeks since she was 7 and I was 17 and off to college.

She was a great housemate!  I was happy to have the help cleaning the kitchen, making dinner, playing with Nate and giving Nate baths!  She also had fun taking Nate and Charlie to the dog park and taking Nate to the pool.  Tessa has a keen knack for knowing when I really needed the help, or some time alone to talk with Ry.  And Nate has truly enjoyed all the love and attention his neni has given him.

I really loved getting to know the woman my sister has become.  You are my best friend Tess and I am honored that you lived with us!  It was a very special time for all of us!  And I am super happy you still live in Austin!!
