A Decade Ago

Carleigh turned 10 today. I feel like the time has rushed by like an Amtrack train. I can't believe 10 years ago today, Kelvin and I were at the beach with his family staying in a cute little cottage when my water decided to break, right at 2 1/2 weeks early. It was 6:40 in the morning. I was a little nervous but not freaking out. Kelvin had actually gone down to the beach to check out the condition of the water. He had a work related workshop he had to attend across the ferry in Galveston, but he wanted to fish later in the day with his dad. My mother-in-law sent our nephew down to the beach to get Kelvin and his dad. Kelvin was sceptical at first but realized Andrew wasn't kidding and got back to the beach house right away. We are a family of kidders and practical jokers, so I understood why he second guessed my request for him to get back to the beach house. :) Anyway, that evening, I delivered our first bundle of joy. She is a treasure. She is ever-changing. We are on the roller coaster of emotions, but she is still a doll, and we will make it through. She is passionate and kind and smart and beautiful and loves her Savior. I look forward to watching her continue to grow in her faith. She is a wonderful big sister to Cora and, ususally, a good pal to Luke. She loves her friends and all things "in" and the latest styles and fads. Carleigh has a beautiful voice and draws beautifully too. She is a delight. I love our sweet Carleigh!
