Our day started with my uncle’s funeral. I always dread funerals. They make me so sad. But, they also remind me of what’s really important in life… and funerals almost always bring family and friends together who haven’t seen each other in a while – many times since the last funeral. I am so thankful for a HUGE extended family and wish that we could spend a lot more time together.
After the funeral, we came home and just hung out. Tyler had just got home from a church ministry project and Daisy and Maddie had just shown up. David went to check the cows and then to Ms. Charlsie’s to do some garden work. I read for a while, until my eyes started getting heavy and then I ended up napping when Maddie napped. (“One Tuesday Morning” so far is SO good!!!)
Tonight, several friends got together at a restaurant to celebrate Jodi’s birthday, which is tomorrow. We had such a good time visiting. Maddie enjoyed all the excitement, too.
When we got home, she wanted a bath. She LOVES bath time. I took these pictures of her brushing her wet hair like a big girl.
