I am only here today thanks to the patience and love of a lot of amazing mothers. (Mine especially, but also a lot of grandmothers, god mothers, adopted mothers, and honorary mothers.) I am grateful for them every day, but today I send extra love to those who have lost a mother, those who are estranged, those who have lost a child, and those who long to be a mother. Today is a day of celebration and thanks, but also a day of difficulty for many. I hope you hold yourself gently today. Know that I am grateful that your mother gave us you.
Kelsey went to homecoming…beautiful!
Kay turned into a smurf…
Farley did it again- wonderful!
Nick’s Shower was a success!
Mattie and Kris decide to go to Paint with a Twist and the highlight of their night was buying a half dozen gourmet cupcakes !!!
Silvie played on the swing, wheeeeee…
I heard Kameron was out all day trying to get a deer- he should have been here- they were in my backyard!
To everyone out there sick…I feel your pain
Wash your hands often, stay hydrated and get lots of sleep (you might even need a croup tent)!
Thanks to everyone that came to watch Delaney’s Musical. She did great and she loved having all there to share it with her! Here are some pictures with family and cast members. There is also one with Mr. Cortese. What a fun night!! Delaney did AWESOME and it was so fun to see her doing what she loves!
“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”
