Saturday was an amazing day for our family. In the morning, Little Miss Haley was baptized.Jessica used her camera (and skillz!) for us at key moments and I'm awaiting the files from her--but here's Haley with two of the four grandparents who came to celebrate. Mom made this fantastically gorgeous dress.
perhaps too much?--about my struggles as Haley's mother, but the flip side is that my joy over her accomplishments is even more poignant. I'm so grateful that she is living this life in this family, no matter our flaws. Watching her broken wings unfurl and fly makes me very happy indeed.
Later in the afternoon, Roscoe and several of his friends celebrated earning their Eagle Scout awards. Roscoe personifies Eagle Scout values in so many ways. He's handsome and talented, sure. But more important, he desires to do good, to be good, and to keep doing better.
