A mother's fear

OK, so ACA had a fundraiser and first prize was a scooter. A real scooter. A scooter that has a motor and goes while you sit on it. A scooter that every mother hopes her children don't want for fear of the repercussions. You know, riding, falling, breaking (limbs and scooters). Well, my fears were realized yesterday with the immortal words "and the grand prize winner, Sadie Wangler". Yes, Sadie won the scooter (with help from her sister - that's a story for another day) and now the flaming beast resides at our home.
Here's Madeline, she got the first ride, because without her, Sadie wouldn't have won.
And, Sadie.
I rode it, too. and I have to say, it's fun! It just scares me when Madeline, who can't even reach the ground while she's on it, wants to go. Pray for me and the safety of my children.
Happy Birthday to my Seester! Who is in Nashville this week and I'll get to see her tomorrow when she flies back and I pick her up at the airport! I've visited with her car this week since it's parked in my driveway. The girls get so excited when we drive down the street "is Nanny here?" I get asked everyday. Her birthday was yesterday but I only just now got to sit down and update.
And, congratulations to our nephew Nathan. Cindy and he had a baby this week, he was born at 32 weeks so he's very small, 2 lbs. 11 oz. but Nathan says he's pretty healthy for being so small. He had a hole in his lung which they fixed and he'll be in the hospital until January, probably. His name is Payton Lee. I can't wait to see him. Keep him in your prayers, too.
Y'all have a good week!
