hannah kate

twenty five years ago i had a child. she was impatient to arrive, and i barely made the 1 1/2 hour trip to the hospital. monday she moved to boston for grad school, and today is her first class. she will be an archivist. 
a story. when she was two weeks old i loaded her in a front pack my friend kathy, who hannah is named after (h. kathleen), made for her older brother ian. and climbed a mountain. a small one, nevertheless i did it. on top, i nursed her, and changed her diaper. and down we came. the leaves were turning. just like now. 
the thomases, who were so briefly here, blogged about their visit.
