We took a few days to go see my mom and dad and sisters and their families this past week. I wanted to celebrate my mom for Mother’s Day and her birthday! It was a fun time. I took my mom to breakfast one morning. I heard my talented nieces and nephews play piano and guitar and drums and sing! I was able to sit and talk with my sisters for several hours. And I was able to see a childhood friend that I hadn’t seen in quite a while. Lots of fun packed in a short time.
One reason we went on a Wednesday was so I could see Jud and Kaybeth perform in their church kid’s production, Kingdom Connection. It was awesome! I could have cried through the whole thing…great message with very moving songs.
Aunt Cacy let them all spend the night at her house Wednesday night, which is always so fun for them. She is the “fun Aunt.” Marcy and I gladly give her that title.
Here is a picture of Kelly and me. We met at Davidson Fine Arts School. She invited my family to her church when I was in 5th grade, and we ended up going there for many years. We rode the bus home together many a day! We sat by each other every day in violin class, sharing a music stand. We went to the same high school and have stayed in touch through the years. Very grateful for friendships that last despite miles and miles between us and busy lives!
Thankful for the time we got to be with family this past week. The kids LOVE playing with their cousins. They always say they wish we lived there, on the same street as everyone else. My favorite part was probably going to breakfast with my mom because I just don’t get one-on-one time with her very often. A rare treat! And a great way to kick of Mother’s Day weekend.
Thanks for having us! It was fun!
