Life moves so quickly. There has been so much to ponder lately, I sometime spend half the night thinking about "life" in general.
Miss Eva, obviously, needed braces. She wears them well.
She also celebrated her 10th birthday. Wow. Double digits. It is hard for me to process how fast my girls are growing up. I told her after she turned 10 I wasn't purchasing her anymore camouflage clothing. We'll see...
My daughter-in-law, Tia, also celebrated a birthday. The lovely lady stopped by after work for her requested dirt cake. She has now moved into the second trimester and I still can't tell she is pregnant.
I recently got an email from one of Joy's teachers at co op informing me that Joy couldn't see the board. I had wondered why she always made funny faces. I am assuming she was trying to focus on what she couldn't see.
Schoolwork is much easier to see now; but she struggles getting used to the glasses sitting on her tiny nose.
My sweet Ivy is now a teenager. How fast that happened!
She chose Rocky Road Pizza for her "cake".
She has definitely come a long way from those first few frightening weeks at home. I love her so much. She is such a sweet, gentle girl.
After eating her dinner and pizza, everyone hung out and decided to color in Ivy's adult coloring books. Such bums.
Ivy also go an old arcade controller with the fun games of my childhood. I was immediately hooked. I've had to pull myself away quite a few times because it is her game, not mine.
Evan Seth got in on the action.
Moxie always enjoys it when her friends come to play. This is Chip and Hobo. I don't think Chip has many years left. He was Tia's since she was a little girl.
Moxie decided she wanted a chain piercing. How gross is that?
She seemed obliviously to the drool hanging off her jowls.
Tia enjoyed a new "Medusa do" compliments of Eva and her pick-up-sticks.
So, that's My Life Lately. It is good and I am so blessed to have this gang around me.
