Saturday was our 11th anniversary! Beloved's birthday, Father's Day and our anniversary all fall within ten days of each other. The boys love celebrations-- lots of excitement, high likelihood of treats-- so it's been fun.
Eleven years... Some things have turned out exactly as we hoped or planned, and some things not so much.
Here's one from the Not So Much category:
That's my seven-year-old in water trough. In a pasture. With cows. (It was a brand new trough, no cow slobber yet, and the fence was off. Still.)
Look at us... All young and skinny... A grad student apartment half-way across the country waiting for us... Somewhat terrified but generally optimistic about all that was in store...
Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday, and Happy Father's Day, Beloved!
