Then and Now

In 2006, we have no pictures of JiaLi on a horse. Joe's parents have a few animals including horses. This year JiaLi has been more involved with Gramma helping to feed the horses and watching where the horses go when they go outside. Mother's Day was beautiful and of course, Joseph asked about the horses. Last year, 2007, only the little kids were able to ride because the horse that was ridden was older and smaller. This year with the younger horse, ALL 11 grandchildren were able to ride. Last year when JiaLi rode, we could not get one smile from her, she was holding on very tightly. Now 2008,she is so much more relaxed on the horses with BIG smiles and even waving her hand(which I missed because I never expected her to do it). If you click on a photo especially the last two, you will be able to see her expression better. Mother's Day was wonderful with a very special day at my parents(more to come on why) and then more fun at Joe's parents. For those who have been asking, donations for the Kidney Foundation can be made by clicking on the black and white photo of the girls in the sidebar. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers for Molly.
