Marie was 11 on Tuesday. It is now Thursday. Gifts are opened, party is over but life is moving quickly with no time to record these precious times in words.
|Family and friends that we call family minus a brother and a cousin|
Today is Community Bible Study and Co-op. Tomorrow we will have to catch up on schoolwork, housework, laundry (and maybe blogging?) as we've been out of town since Saturday. THIS Saturday and Sunday we will be spending in two different areas of Nashville for two different soccer tournaments for two different kids. Somewhere we will breathe and I will (hopefully) play some tennis.
Marie had an awesome party and here is a picture of her with all but one of her grandparents. Her Mammaw (my stepmother) is caring for her dying sister in St. Louis so is not in the picture. For some reason, Grandpa Foster doesn't look happy but I assure you, he was. So, not playing favorites here but to be fair:
I *will* find time to journal this special day for Marie. And brag on Thomas and his run in the Haunted Half here in our little town (5.9 miles in 52 minutes!). And record my brother's visit too. Whew. It's been a busy five days :)
