A sad time for my town.

Karrah number 3,

When you are from a small town like mine and you know everyone when something bad happens it hits us all like a ton of bricks. Friday night my granddaughter and her ball team were at a camp out and slumber party. They are all 13 and 14 years old. They had a bonfire at one of the girls houses back in the field, they were just doing what kids do, you know having fun. One of the girls step brother went to check the bonfire and the girls wanted to ride in the back of the pickup truck, he thought they were all in and one of them fell and was ran over by the tire of a big four wheel drive truck. It was an accident, the boy is devastated and never wants to drive that truck again. She was killed and the whole team witnessed it. These girls have been together since they started playing ball and they are all devastated as you can imagine. My cousin who is also the High School Principal has been their coach since they started playing. He has coached them through baseball and basketball and soccer in first grade and he has a daughter the same age. He loves them all and has spent countless hours taking them to ballgames, taking them home, feeding them, etc. He is with them in the pictures I have posted. This was a beautiful little girl and I ask for your prayers for her family, friends, classmates, and ball team. School starts here on Tuesday and what should have been a bright day will now be a very sad day. Her visitation is Wednesday and her funeral will be Thursday. In the pictures I am posting Karrah is number 3.

The girls have tamed down so much, they come running when they see or hear me. Hmmm, I wonder is it me or the feed??

I just had a birthday and it was great. My family had a party for me and I didn't fix a thing, all right I fixed the hamburger patties but they brought everything else. I also had a party at work. I have great friends and a great family and I love them all. The rooster bowl is from my friend Mitsy, the silver bracelet from my husband and attached to the note that says video camera was enough money to buy a good video camera, the silver and black bracelet is from my sister, the flower pot my sister made and grew the basil that is planted in it and she had a carpenter cut the L for Lucas and those are all pictures I have taken of him, the solar butterfly is from my mother in law, the balloons and flower pot full of chocolate chip cookies were delivered by my neighbor and friend Debbie before I left for work. and the last picture is Lucas wishing me Happy Birthday. Lucas made me the stepping stone of his foot with help from his Daddy. How about that card my sister made for me, how cute is that? I love it.
