Linda & I went camping for a few days- she needs foot surgery (plate put in left foot) and I had a colonoscopy- we decided to go chill. Very relaxing- some fireworks and her brother won a YETI cooler which he gave Linda for her birthday! I read 2 books in 3 days- in the past 3 weeks I have read 5 books! We are home now catching up on house chores- still very hot here.
I read the first book awhile back- it is a series with the same main characters- I enjoyed them if anyone is looking for books to read.
Silvie is growing and learning- learned to shake hands and loves her Story time!
Silvia’s new obsession-BOWS!
Kelly got 1st place Mid-Season Championship for Saturday night Mod Lite Hurricanes!
Nina won another beauty pageant- beautiful little girl! (Though we don’t need a pageant to tell us that).
Looks like Nina is getting lots of loving this weekend- Sarah is home!!!
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.
Yesterday was the DiSanto reunion at Seneca Lake. Kelly, Nick, Harley and Nana & Poppy went. Here are a few shots. Harley is getting so big.
“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.”
