First, some things were lost ...
She lost her two front teeth!
Some things were celebrated . . .
The fourth of July of was celebrated in our town on the 6th of July. Braydon, Ricky and Jerome ran a 5K in the morning. Adela tried her hand at a pie contest and the evening was filled with friends, family and fireworks.
We had a reunion . . .
Riane came home after a year in Taiwan teaching English.
And these kids; they just keep growing . . .
She turned 14 today!
It was a good week -- I have not laughed this hard in a very long time. It just feels good to have all the chicks home ... at least for awhile!
