Dear Bonnie & Rich,
Thank you so much for letting me take a peek of what life looks like for you on a Saturday afternoon. I loved watching all three of your sweet kids play. I felt at home. I loved how excited William, Robert, and Camille were about having me tag along on their day. Camille was the perfect hostess. She truly was “the welcome wagon.” I hope these memories are embedded in your hearts for years to come!
Dear William, Robert, and Camille,
Your mama and daddy are astounded by how quickly you’ve grown up! William and Robert, you just turned 4, and that sounds impossibly old. Camille, you’ll be 2 in just a few months, and you are most definitely NOT a baby anymore! We love to watch all three of you play together. You are so loving and inclusive, and come up with the best games. We are so proud of how hard all of you work at challenges, not giving up until you conquer them! From jumping off the edge of the pool to climbing up the wiggly rope ladder of the play set, from sounding out confusing words to figuring out Lego instructions, from using big-kid scissors to putting on your own shoes, you all just keep trying, even if it takes many, many tries.
William, I love your compassion and sweet heart. You love your family, and love when we are all together. It is so neat for me to watch you solve a puzzle, turning pieces, starting again and again, until your triumph when it’s all done and you DID IT.
Robert, I love your wild imagination! You tell such crazy stories, and love making people laugh. It’s a blessing to our family to have your sense of humor to keep things from being too serious.
Camille, you are our spitfire: a constant ball of energy, a daredevil, a silly monkey who loves to laugh. You sure do keep us on our toes! We sometimes call you “the welcome wagon”, because you shine your happy light on everyone you see, everywhere we go.
We love your three!
Mama & Daddy
