Katy, Jordan, Ashley (sisters all in a row)
It is hard to believe we are still bobbing along in the same lifetime as the one pictured here. This was taken in our backyard between the pyracantha and the pool in Albuquerque, NM. We look, respectively, 4, 5, and 6-years old. Who knew the chubbiest of us would wind up the most wispy!
Katy now has her own big brood of "sisters all in a row" and she's due next month with a sixth (sister or sir, we're not sure). Her birthday was yesterday, though this tribute is tardy, I hope my orange gifts for her cool studio weren't.
I love Katy. She is a marvel to all, but to me she is a comrade in arms. In the battle of motherhood (for it IS a battle) I am grateful to be able to call upon her wisdom, humor, and advice as we raise our rascals fighting for the triumph of family.
I hope hope hope someday we will be much closer geographically! Happy birthday, Katy!
And a happy 43 years (also yesterday) to these two lovebirds!!
