Happy 13th Birthday Madi!!
Okay, I know I promised not to bore you with too many grandkid pictures, but I have to give them equal time, don't I? Yesterday was Madi's 13th birthday and because I missed her party on Sunday, (Ventura, remember) I drove to Tehachapi (small mountain town 45 mi. from me where we lived and raised our 3 boys) to take her to dinner. She is my oldest granddaughter, and the first girl for me after 3 sons and 1 grandson. So needless to say she has a special place in my heart. She has been doing dance including ballet since she was 3, but just started "on pointe" this summer and got her first "pointe shoes" . Here she's laughing (I love that she is always laughing), but I finally snapped one of her on pointe. This was a big step for her in dance and I am so proud.
