The title of my page "I love you pi" is a direct quote from my 5 1/2 year old Dallin. Someone once told him that pi is the longest number, and him being the mathmatician that he is, equates this with being the highest possible number, the last number, the biggest and best number. So when he expresses his feelings for us, he uses the phrase, "I love you pi." It's quite a compliment. And although I have tried to tell him that pi is really only a little more than 3, he looks at me like, 'no mom, you just don't get it.' I never was very good at math.
We are still residing in Tucson, and though we are now facing another summer in the 100's, we love it. Jamie has another year until he finishes his fellowship in Cardiology. For the first time in our married life, he loves what he is doing... so maybe it will all be worth it. We just passed our 10 year anniversary, an amazing feat, and when I look back on all that we've managed to overcome these 10 years I am overwhelmed... and deeply grateful. I'm grateful to have a man beside me who has always put me first, who considers my feelings like it's second nature to him. I'm grateful for the three little monkeys that I have the privilege to spend every day with. Although this life is very messy and sometimes mundane, I wouldn't change a thing.
