Hello to All - Sorry for the delay in the post, lately Addi and I have been loving the outdoors as much as possible. I feel sorry for our street we live on. Addi is determined to ride her bike, but she insists I go with her. Well as she gets better and better the faster she goes, Mommy can no longer walk, now I am running chasing her. She is yelling run faster Mommy and I am yelling stop now have the visual.
Addi and I made it through and had a great Mother Daughter Mother's Day. A friend Leslie gave us the idea of planting together on Mother's Day. So we attempted to plant a garden, I use the word garden loosely. I let Addi pick the plants out, jalapenos, cilantro, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a few others. She was so excited Sunday morning that it was Mother's Day to give me my presents she made with the help of Jessica, a camp, and a card picked out. You would have thought it was Christmas, how could one be sad. There was a moment when she realized there is probably a Daddy's day, but I assured her we would do something special for Daddy.
Speaking of Daddy, a quick store to take how you want, but the other day Addi woke up (after sleeping in an extra hour) This typically make for an extra energy day, but Addi calmly walked into the room curled up on my lap and quietly said, "Daddy woke me up. He said Sweetie, its time to wake up." She seemed at peace, so either dreaming and reality, it gave her peace and I am grateful for those moments.
I also have big news, the book written by a friend Kim Reynold's, The Evening Oak, is available for pre-order now. Use this link and get yours today, the more ordered the sooner the better...Congrats to Kim
This is a great read for adults and young adults, so for any of you teachers out there let your students know!
Love to All
Christi and Addi

There is not a day or even a moment that goes by that I am thinking about you, Addi, and Bo. I still miss him so much. So glad Addi is finding peace with it all! We could all learn a lot from a 4 year old!!!!

Love you,

When I lost my father in 2000, I had the most vivid dream of my life that many many have assured me was a visit from my father. He has also visited my children on occasion. Addi's calm and matter of fact manner in which she shared the information leads me to the belief that Bo did indeed wake her up. What a great relationship the two of them continue to have. She will carry him with her forever. Cherish these moments when they are more frequent. As she gets older, the negative things about being an adult (scepticism, doubt, disbelief) tend to get in the way of receiving these dreams for the beautiful gift that they are. Children don't know any better and just accept them as they come.

Glad to hear things are going well. You two are always in our thoughts and prayers.
