What a week it has been! This week we celebrated your sister turning 12 and becoming a bat-mitzvah. Her party was planned to be at FBC so we could simultaneously give honor to you without taking away from her. It was a blast, minus that we couldn't get the backroom lights to fully turn off, so some light came through the glass walls. It was perfect besides that and everyone had a blast. Aba's speech made me tear up, but I was standing towards the side so I think it went unnoticed. I feel proud of myself for the foresight of knowing how it could go so I recorded my speech, and that was brilliant.
Your sister wanted to honor you in an extra special way so she asked us to have pictures of you and her and your Rifton chair. I bought one of those frames that change pictures and figured as a bonus in the new house it will hang by your chair on the wall. I only doubted my placement of it, I hope people saw it by the rock wall. I wanted it out of the way so it wasn't played with, but noticed, I hope it was successful.
It was a great week with so many out-of-town guests. We ended the week by going up to Bear Pines with everyone and having an amazing weekend. Thanks for bringing us the snow since it wasn't initially forecasted and then it happened.
The worst part of last week, as I am sure you already know, was that Coach Ed died. I hope he is giving you swim lessons, maybe you will resume your Wednesday time slot? Our hearts are broken. Aba and I will hopefully attend his funeral this week. Aba still talks about the bear hug he gave him at your funeral. It is just impossible to comprehend. It just seems insane to me, no one knew that 101 weeks and 6 days after you died, he would follow suit. Life is I don't know what?!
Anyway baby girl. I hope you have a great week. It's your turn to show Coach Ed the ropes, have fun swimming! Love and miss you!
Until next time.
