Amber's wedding plans continue ahead towards mid-year, best summed up by saying there will be many of the traditional things found at a wedding, yet it will be a nontraditional wedding. Confused? I have been given the chance to see her in the wedding dress and really don't know how she could have picked out anything more beautiful. To see her and Shelly plan this together is really an awesome thing for me to behold, and another tribute to the glory of God for bringing Amber this far.
Shelly and I will have some time today with both, Bailey and Poppy, which makes it a very special Sunday! At the age of eight, Baily Michael's interest in sports is exploding at this point - he collects all kinds of baseball and football cards, has a favorite jersey number, and is getting into statistics! Yesterday he scored two baskets for his basketball team, which actually tied for the individual lead. After the second basket, he took a moment before running back down the court to stop where I was sitting on the sideline to give me a high five. And at a Parent-Teacher conference last week, Amber was told he excels at reading and math. He apparently wants to share everything with his classmates.
Poppy, too, holds keys to our hearts. She is growing, cooing, smiling, and I am convinced - can't wait for each time she sees me. :) And once Grandma Shelly gets her hands on Poppy - you can't wedge a spatula between them.
