While cleaning out the barn I came across my old swim cap- ready to throw it away, Linda thought Delaney might get a hoot out of it. We mailed it off and when she got it- she threw it on and told her mom she was going to swim laps like an Olympic swimmer! You go girl- one day you just might be.

“The hardest part of raising a child is teaching them to ride bicycles.
A shaky child on a bicycle for the first time needs both support and freedom.
The realization that this is what the child will always need can hit hard.”

This summer Delaney learned to ride her bike without training wheels and all by herself! Look at her go…

This weekend {{popup kkdinner.gif kkdinner 500×443}}Kevin was home and Kristie and her family came down for golf and dinner. It went very well. Everyone had a good time. WE liked her family a lot! I think her mom and I could be good friends. But I wanted to say “THANK YOU” to my family for all the help at the dinner. Everyone of them came out and asked “what can I do?” I could not have done this without your help. You helped set up the tables, put out the horsdouvres, poured drinks and saw that people were watered down, help serve the food, and most of all, helped clean up. A special thanks to Nick, he was such a help in the kitchen. If we ever do something like this again I’m calling you. It was fun. I love all of you and thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am a lucky woman to call you my family.

A side note–{{popup F&R.gif F&R 500×443}}Farah had her baby on Tuesday. A little girl named “Lily Grace” 5 lbs 14 oz. Everyone is fine and Grandma and Grandpa are just glad shes here and doing good. This was a hard pregnancy.

Love, Mom

That’s right… she’s dancing for joy because she had her graduation this morning at 10 a.m. My mom tried to take pictures, but something happened to her camera and the card didn’t record them. They all went out to lunch today to celebrate! Congrats little one! This is one big step that you should be proud of!

Wednesday night Kate had an end of the year Award Ceremony at school and she was awarded the Geneva High School Chemistry Award for Top 10% in the Regents Chemistry for Geneva High. Couldn’t be more proud of her to get this as a Junior. This will be great on her resume for Colleges for Pharmacy. Hard to believe that in a few short weeks she will be a Senior and her last year in High School. Where did the time go…….at any rate wanted to share as she works hard and again beyond proud of her!
