As you know, today marks the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. For our generation, it was the day that you remember exactly where you were when you heard the news. I was sitting in U.S. History class when one of the other teachers came in and told us. The rest of the day was spent watching the news coverage. I don't think anyone knew what would happen over the next 10 years because of that day. Needless to say, it definitely changed U.S. history forever. We grew up in Fairfield County, Connecticut, where a lot of people commute in and out of the city from. Thankfully, no one we knew personally were there, but friends' families were. And for all those families that were changed from these event, we'll always remember. And also to those men and women-first responders and military- we thank you for your dedication and service.
Ok, time to switch gears. Since this week's theme is family, we have a scrapbook layout to share all those sibling memories with. We were *blessed* to have two older brothers, although that feeling hasn't always been mutual :)
We were always trying to out-do and one-up the boys. (Well, we still do when given the chance.) Even though we are younger, we never let them out easy, even if it took a double-team on one of them. It sure did take a while, but I'm pretty sure that we finally see eye-to-eye with them. So thanks guys, for helping us be better people!
