Over the years the kids have taught me so much through their individual passions and talents. With Meagan I learned the beauty of a piece of choral music, even if the words were foreign to me. Kelli's time in the Crimson Cadettes taught me to recognize dance routines as either a kick routine, or jazz, or lyrical, or pom, or hip hop. With Bri it was mixture of choir and theatre and softball...but theatre really had her heart. So, I learned about one act plays and techie tricks to make a stage look a certain way. Brian was all about the round ball in high school and I had some knowledge of the game from when his dad played. (Technically, I played one year too...but I don't think I had a single point, so I started keeping the scorebooks.) When he picked up art and started playing the guitar, my world broadened once again.
So, even though this picture is of Will and football -- I want my kids to know that I am thankful for each one of them and for all the ways that they have broadened my world. You are each unique and wonderful and dearly loved!
