Lucky Mama, and Shaelee takes 1st!













It's been a busy weekend. On Friday, Shaelee competed in her first gymnastics meet. Only 2 little ones competed, but she did win first place! She is a total natural, serious as can be, and when it was over, with a big grin, she told me, "I was first Mama." She proudly hung up her very first medal beside her bed. I think she looked like a future Olympian up there! (Very proud of Ms Emily too, who took second all around!)

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! I asked Ralph for one thing, a picture of the kids that he had taken. He didn't disappoint nor did they. Love that top picture of all of the little C's. I got more hugs and kisses than I can count, the best gift of all.

I am always reminded, that I am a Mother today, because 5 other Mother's couldn't be. I remember my children's birth Mothers today, who selflessly did the best that they could do, to love and protect their babies. I am thankful that we have been entrusted with these special children. We love them very very much. And we are forever grateful to be their parents, and today, I just celebrated being a Mom.
