to an era... 4 decades of hard work!
this weekend i have one thing planned:
sunday night goodbye dinner for my baby brother!
he goes off to school in about a week.
[cries, i remember the day he was born!
-and we still have the recording of the news story that day of my mom using
midwives and having 5/7 children at home, baby bro was a superstar from birth]
my parents will finally be empty-nesters after a short 40 years
of constantly having AT LEAST one child in their home.
[almost 40 years to the day, as my eldest brother turned 40 on AUGUST 22nd.]
so a big
to my parents for a successful 40 years of constant diapers, tears, hugs, birthday parties, barbies, legos, hot wheels, cheer, volleyball, football, soccer, softball games & try-outs, drivers ed, summer vacations & summer reading programs.
hooray for making it out alive & keeping us all alive and on the right track in life.
thank you for being amazing examples in your faith & hard work ethic and for being incredible parents.
NOW for the fun part:
[11 grand kids & counting]
time to spoil them like crazy & send them home at the end of the night ;)
oh, and break out the barbies, legos & hot wheels again!
CHEERS TO MY PARENTS.
