With October 1st approaching, I am again reminded of Kristin’s wonderful past birthday celebrations. This morning I was looking through my memory box and I found a bunch of invitations to her birthday parties.

Here’s what I found:

1st birthday was a swim party held 10/3/87 at her Coriander house

2nd birthday was again a swim party held 10/1/88 at Coriander

3rd birthday was also a swim party on 10/1/89 at Coriander

I can’t find a card for 4th or 5th

6th birthday was celebrated 10/4/92 at Mehl Park

I can’t find a card for 7th

8th birthday was a baseball and water balloon party on 10/2/94 at Mehl Park

I can’t find a card for 9th or 10th

11th birthday was held 10/4/97 at McCormick Park and included volleyball playing

I can’t find a card for 12th thru 14th, but I know the 14th was a swim party at her Orange Grove house.

Can anybody fill in any of the missing details?


Let's Roll! (Original poster: Shelly L.) September 18, 2002

This evening while I was shopping at Target I bought the new book “Let’s Roll!”, written by Lisa Beamer. She is the widow of Todd Beamer, who is considered one of the heroes on the downed Pennsylvania flight on 9/11/01. It is very easy-reading; in fact I read the whole book (all 312 pages) in one night. Despite losing her husband, facing instant ‘celebrity’ status at the most difficult time in her life, forced to raise her two young sons on her own, giving birth to their daughter months after her husband’s death, Lisa’s attitude and faith is still strong. I found it to be a very encouraging story in a time where situations in our lives don’t always make sense and goodness is often hard to find. If you read it, I hope you get as much out of it as I did.
