A Birthday Party

The disadvantage of living in Minnesota is that it is very far away from family, which makes family birthday parties difficult. Fortunately, our friend Betsy from Birmingham conveniently timed her visit to her sister Lucy in Minneapolis on the Saturday before Jack and Gabriel’s birthday, so when they invited us for a cook-out we brought along cake and made a big deal that Miss Childs came all the way from Alabama to help us celebrate. I must say, it is kind of nice to let someone else cook all the food and bring only the cake! Thanks to Dan and Lucy for hosting us and to Charlie, Elisabeth, and Miss P. for sharing their beloved Aunt Betsy with us.

About Wendy McCollum

I am a single mom to five wonderful boys. Life is an adventure, with many twists and turns. We live in hope, always, for our great God can redeem all things. There are so many funny and precious moments that slip by too fast. Perhaps here I can save them for when my own memory fails.
