Then, my close friend that I coached with passed away unexpectedly. He was healthy. He was jogging. Had a heart attack. I cried for a week. I didn't know what to do or how to get out of it. My teaching buddies... I can't thank them enough. Em was there for me during lunches to chat. Karen let me cry it out and question everything. Natalie and Lauren let me talk and cry. So supportive. Another great blogging friend let me cry, scream and question. She put everything in perspective and grounded my strong feelings. Thanks so much Jenny!
So, a few weeks ago, the sun started shining again. I stopped crying. Turned another year older, had knee surgery (so I can FINALLY run again) and celebrated a few great things with my girls. It is my hope that life is back to as normal as normal can be with three ladies in the house. :)
Here are a few pictures to catch you up. :)
The first "real" picture our youngest has drawn. :)
Easter Egg Hunt at my sister's house.
Our oldest celebrated her First Communion. The dress she wore was worn by my mom 57 YEARS AGO! I also wore it as well as my 5 other sisters. It reminds me of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants because we are all shapes and sizes and it fit us all! :) She also wore my wedding veil.
Our youngest finally got her Kings Island Pass! And almost everyone moved up in their height. :) Lots of growing going on in this family, BUT I'm thankful NONE of us (well... children anyway) are tall enough for the Banshee yet. I'm not ready to stomach that coaster yet.
We've hung around at the park, built forts, had puppet shows and went to story time with Em's girls and my niece with the princesses. :) It was cute. I think they were high school girls, but they were super cute and sang wonderfully!
Finally this little lady finished Kindergarten. I'm so, so, so proud of her. Love that outfit!
I tried to talk her out of it, but she wanted to wear red on red. She actually had on capris that were pink and white striped. She rolled them up under her skirt. Should I be worried?
Thanks for sticking with me. It is my hope to blog, create and share lots more because we have a lot of great stuff going on friends! :)
I'd love to hear what you've been up to!
