she meets the sisters

i'm able to stay home today and monday from work for paternity leave, which is better than nothing i guess. deb is still pretty exhausted, as would be expected after the experience. (BTW guys, she says she's heard it compared to running a marathon, she says "it's nothing like running a marathon. a marathon would be easy, almost fun exercise by comparison. in a marathon you are simply using your muscles in a normal way, although vigerously. there's nothing normal about the muscles you use for childbirth!" -[and all the women said, "AMEN!"])

here's some pics of rachel meeting the rest of the family:


i'll write more about the whole experience later. (nothing traumatic, for me at least. just some funny anecdotes)
