Day 24 - Peaceful

Sorry I needed a hiatus.  My head needed a rest.  Sometimes it is relaxing to write, sometimes it is a luxury.  I didn't relax or have any sort of luxury last week.  (Except for my Birthday, I did take some time there of course!!)  Spring break is a welcome relaxing luxury.  WooHoo!!

Last week was Claire's birthday. I can't believe she would be eight.  Time flies way to fast.  We have  a tradition to take McDonald's to the cemetery to eat  and celebrate her birthday.  The cemetery is so peaceful to me, I hope my kids feel the same peace there as well.  When we sat down to eat, Josh said, "Mom aren't we going to say a prayer?"  I let him say it, it was so cute. 

We can't wait until we can see her again!!

I Love how we have 3 sodas on the gravestone.  That is so us.
