Maggie had her birthday party. Her grandma, my mom, came over. We had apple pie and ice cream...two of my kids don't like cake, so they choose pie. We have a six foot board that we measure everyone's height on at their birthday. We like to see how much they have grown. Maggie is as tall at thirteen as William was at fourteen. If someone grows taller than the board, we can put their added inches on the bottom of the board.
It is chillier out tonight. There is a slight breeze. The wind chimes on the front porch are playing slow, soft music and the flags are rippling in the wind.
