First Love

Yesterday we went to visit with Kevin's siblings. Kevin's niece was also there with her 3 sons and her adopted son Dan. Ciara has had the opportunity to spend some time with the boys a couple of times this summer and they have made an impression on her each time. Yesterday it became clear that my daughter has her first "crush". I can't say I blame her too much, Dan is terribly sweet young man. He has been through a lot in his short life, but seems to have come through it all remarkably well adjusted. He is very caring and kind. His adoptive brothers all treat him as their leader and tend to do whatever he asks without question.
I can only hope that Ciara continues to be such an excellent judge of character during her teen years! Perhaps if she does her father won't end up buying that shot gun after all.

How sweet!

Welcome back, I'm glad to see you made it through the withdrawl. And what a nice new layout, I love it. Did I miss this before when I was being lazy with reader? Or is it really brand new right now?
