It seems like only yesterday she was this girl

or even this one

but somehow, in the blink of an eye, she vanished.

Monday she was this girl:


She who is the very best surprise of my life.

She who promised to never leave me.

She who did.

We had a Hello Kitty party to celebrate with family. A skating party with friends will come later.

Her sisters worked hard to decorate above the table. Her Grama made a cake. I made treats for her class at school, and wrapped a present to tuck in her lunchbox.

We made memories.

But none of us was able to make the clock stop.

Six-thirty brought six, like it or not.

She’s going to be an awesome six, I know – just like every year before.

Happy Birthday Sweet Pie Pie Girl.

To the moon and back.

  1. On October 3, thirty high scoohl students from Mount Si’s Key Club visited the homes of two elderly folks in North Bend. Armed with gloves, garden tools, and determination ..they set out to offer assistance to these homeowners where the labor had simply become too big an obstacle. The students split and stacked firewood, trimmed overgrown bushes and hedges, brought garden beds back to objects of beauty, raked leaves, and filled an enormous trailer with discarded and rotting lumber that was taken to the dump. The best part of this endeavor was the smiles and hugs given by the homeowners to these high scoohl Key Clubbers. That so many showed up at their homes to Pay it Forward was overwhelming and one of the most heart-warming experiences I have seen. Way to go Mount Si Key Club!
