Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.
When we first started attending Holy Name of Mary parish, oh so many years ago, we used to see a family there every Sunday. Father, mother (blonde), and two kids (blonde) maybe 3 and 5 years old. As time went on, a baby was born, then another and another. All blonde as all get out! Over the years we just referred to them as "the blonde family". Wasn't it a surprise when Linda and I went to BB's grandparents day and discovered that her teacher is the "blonde mom"!! This morning, BB tells Linda that Mrs. M (blonde mom) has been out all week so she could attend her son's graduation from "middle" school. DLG informed us that the son is graduating from MEDICAL school!! Oh... My... God... are we really that old??? They were so young and cute just a few years ago (or so it seems!!!).Links to this post
