newest card

Today is my daughter's birthday, the inside reads Often times when you
                                                                          were growing up, I would
                                                                           stop and try to imagine
                                                                            what you would be like as
                                                                            an adult. It seemed, then,
                                                                            that you would stay a
                                                                           child forever. Today, I
                                                                          realize that you have
                                                                          surpassed my highest
                                                                           expectations. We're both
                                                                          so proud of you!

2011 running out of time

Here it is getting close to the last of summer, the tomatoes are ripe, I bought my first peaches yesterday and then Cliff (husband) bought peaches on his way home from work.
Guess what we're having for supper. Yes peach shortcake. surprised?

The grand kids started school Friday. It's Emily's (the oldest) last first day. She will be moving on to high school next year. Where did the years go. It seems like it wasn't that long ago that her mother was in high school. So sad :( and happy too :) all three kids are great kids with their own talents. Emily is an A student and we are hoping for a basketball scholarship. She loves the game and would play it year round.

She was in the 7th grade last year and played on the eighth grade team. She then went on to AAU and then a summer league and Gus Macker. Now that school had started she's playing volleyball and then back to basketball.

William is into soccer and he is a really good artist. He mainly works in pencil. It looks like comic book art to me with 11 year old boy humor. He is the cutest boy in his class (grandma bragging) and the girls love him. Hmmmmmmmmmm maybe I should look into that.

And last but not least Carson. Carson the youngest plays soccer, too. He takes piano lessons and seems to be sticking to it. I took one book and mom let me quit. I now regret it so I hope Carson continues to love it. He says he wants to play football but his parents so he has to wait until junior high. Starting so young as they do is dangerous and not safe for seven year old. I have to agree.
