It has been an amazing honor to walk with this family for the last five years. I know that the kids will miss their friends and I will sure miss the fun of all these little people running around but, most of all, I will miss my good friend. She has been with me since the early days of my motherhood and we have added several babies together along the way. I have been blessed with her empathy and counsel. I know she will be a blessing to all of those women in Wisconsin who will benefit as I have.
Still, I can't be sad on a day like today...we saw the DUCK! You know the giant yellow thing in the river?!? OK, it was cool but frankly, the time spent at the fountain seemed a bigger hit with my kids. It was good to be there and feel the mist after being away so long (it's been MANY years since I've been there). It was also good to be downtown and see all the Pirates fans. What a great day to be in the 'Burgh!
