Happy Birthday KATE!

May 24th 1993 was a special day!

Luke (my brother) was 6 and in Preschool and I was 8 and in first grade. We got special news around the time school was let out that our Mama had went to the hospital to have our sister. We rode the school bus home and a family friend picked us up at our house and got us both ready for our T-ball game that evening. My Dad was the coach of our team and missed the game to be with our Mama and our soon to be sister. I will never forget the moment that my Grandma ran onto the T-ball field and shouted; "Kate is here!" I remember the excitement not only in my Granny but from Luke and I. We were so happy to have another sibling. We were so proud, we went to the hospital after the game to hold Kate. We were so happy to have a baby in our house! It has been pure JOY to have Kate! I cannot imagine what our lives would have been like without her! She is full of energy and life! WOW! There is NEVER a dull moment with her!

It's hard to believe she is 17 today; driving for one solid year, just attended her first prom, planning for college, working harder than ever at her game: softball, and growing into a nice young lady!

Here's to you sister, KATE!
