HB to Summer

May 25th, 2005

It was on this day, a Memorial Day thirteen years ago, that our lives changed forever. Notice of the change came the night before, when Wendy rolled over, shook my shoulder, and said “Wake up, coach, it’s time to go to the hospital.”

Hippo Birdies to Summer, who turned 13 today. She got a new portable CD player, a used (but very nice) Fender acoustic guitar, a manicure kit, and enough bath products to keep all of Pearland smelling good for months.

    It’s so hard to believe she is 13! When I talked to her on the phone last night, I said something like ‘So, you’re finally a teenager’ to which she replied ‘I have been since I was 8 years old’. She makes a strong point! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUMMER!
