We, of course obliged. Because we LOVE fondue.
So do Mumma and Poppy!February brought about some stir-crazy kids and the death of my lap top. I also chaperoned our Sean's orchestra trip to Savannah for the GMEA convention. Isn't he handsome here in his tux?
February would also bring a newly confirmed Catholic!! Sean's sponsor, Uncle Rob, was in Iraq. Here he is with the rest of the family
March would begin myThrow in the obligatory Irish celebration, the annual church party...
fascination addiction to Facebook. You can see a direct correlation between this addiction and the number of blog posts from here on out. While I love FB, I would become disenchanted by it as we learned of the death of my mother's best friend Cate, via FB
and a LOT of rowing, and chaperoning a GREAT group of kids from church on retreat.
April would continue with more rowing...and a quick trip up to Charleston the visit the girlie and play tourists.
May saw the end of the rowing season...the end of the school year -- my first employed school year!! Sean turned 16! God received 2 souls into heaven, our friend Judith our friend and neighbor Erin, who was only 17. We would celebrate Mother's Day by giving mom a gift that she would, OF COURSE, return...
June would bring the whole clan together to celebrate the baptism of the newest member of the family and
finally another girl! Welcome to the world Keira Rose!
The rest of June would be spent poolside enjoying our cousins before the Davidson's next move to Virginia.
July would bring sadness. My dear sister-in-law Biffy would lose her battle with cancer a short seven months after her diagnosis. I was blessed to be with her at the end and pray everyday that she is at peace with our Lord and is looking out for meI have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; 2 Timothy 4:7
October brought the sought after Head of the Charles Regatta
December brought Christmas fun and sad memories of Biffy's struggle. Ryan would finally become a teenager! We would also have another basement flood and a broken hand on Daniel. We spent the holiday snuggling in front of lots of fires in the fireplace watching movie after movie.
2010 HERE WE COME!
