We took a little family trip to Pensacola, FL (3hours the last time tom & I made it, 45 minutes with Terry driving) (tom & I are famous for getting lost) to see Sarah McLoughlin. If any of you get the chance,that is a show well worth seeing.she is great! the stage setting is very elaborate & she relates things to the audience with little stories about her songs, very high tech & intimate at the same time.Terry is my hero "cause he bought Caitlin & I tshirts (what good is going to a concert with out a tshirt?)
the part of the whole trip I will remember is stopping at a convenience store & noticing they had cowboy hats to match Caitlin & Mariah's new tshirts. They tried them on & started doing their version of a Virginia Reel, in perfect step with each other (all those dance lessons do pay off, folks) The cash register dude took pictures! "I love this job!", he said.
Mariah's birthday is this weekend. (in our family we dont' celebrate birthday, we have birthseasons) She is 24 & the partner in my journey through this life.I am closer to her than I have ever been to anyone . It is so wonderful to have another adult in the house! ( I adore my husband, but in so many ways,he is another one of the kids)
Just another day at the circus!
