A little over six years ago our “surprise child” was born.
One of my thoughts back then, which seems like yesterday, was “wow, I will have a senior in high school and a first-grader the same year.”
Close to Nowhere
Graduations and birthdays
It’s been a busy week! Saturday, we celebrated Gremlin’s 10th birthday (which was actually Sunday).
Her mom, big sister, Uncle Dennis and I took her to the Memphis Zoo for the day.
I love the zoo when the weather is good, but during the summer, I’d just as soon take a beating as walk around on that concrete in that heat!
