Trip to my Mom's

I am writitng this from Chicago. I am spending the week with my Mom and then my Sister. Today Kelly (niece) and her picked Mom and I up and we all drove to Kathy my Sister. There we celebrated Charlie's graduation from 8th grade. The only thing is Charlie had a rescheduled ball game to play, so we spent the day without him!!

We did spend some time at the ball field watching. I brought up buffalo steaks as a treat for supper and also stopped at the farmer's market in KY. Dinner was delicious.
There is Charlie pitching. He is such a great kid. I am very close to my sister's family and even though we live far away from each other we manage to stay close. The beautiful girl is Mary if I had a daughter I woudl want her to be just like Mary. That is Kathy and Kelly on the bottom.
My sister Tish passed away when she ws 31, Kelly's mom. On the way up to Kathy's today I sat next to Ethan, to entertain him I was showing him pictures in my wallet. There is a picture I carry of my Mom and sister's. Ethan looked at Tish's pisture then at his Mom and said " Mom she looks just like you". Kelly is the spitting image of my sister, but to have a three year old notice, made us all smile.
I love my family.
