Sorry this will be so short, off to take half of the family to the doctor as coughs have progressed to really nasty coughs, but first I wanted to share some great news. First off, my daughter turned six last week, six, can you believe it? They grow up so fast. We had a wonderful couple of days of celebration and she is enjoying being another year older. Next, my brother flew his first solo helicopter flight which sounds terrifying to me, but I am so very proud of him. Last, but definitely not least, last Thursday we paid off the last of our debt. I don’t think it has still quite hit me, but all of those hospital bills (and some others) are finally done with. It took quite a while to do, but it feels so good to not owe anything to anyone. Almost every day the babe will pluck a little wildflower out of the garden and have me pin it in her hair. Last week she came in with a tiny baby lettuce sprout and asked “what flower?” I told her it was lettuce and she said “lettis perfick for mine hair” with a big beautiful grin, how could I resist?
