Visit to Avalon

Bry’s Great-aunt Bunty invited us for a visit on seven mile island, NJ, where she’s enjoyed her unique cottage home for many years.

We saw the original portraits of Bryant’s 3rd great grandparents, heard many family stories, and explored the wetlands institute which Bunty and her late husband passionately supported.

The hand made bird mobile, which he carved and she painted, continues to impress and educate visitors.

X-ray week for Lily

Lily’s having a growth spurt so her doc did a bone age x-ray last Wednesday (normal)

Then she slammed her hand in the basement door on Saturday and today we had to x-ray the same hand again! Weird, right?! She doesn’t have any obvious fractures but needs to wear the splint just in case.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL

After 2 seasons of no scores, the Sharks (Lily’s soccer team) finally scored a goal, in the last game of the second season.  And it was Lily that scored it!  “Elation” falls short of the screaming!

 

If there are any Sharks that see this, Thea’s name is Lily, but we called her Thea (short for Dorothea which is her middle name) because there was already a Lily on the team!

 

Aqua Girl

Lily put together her own costume for CVA spirit week Super Hero Day, including a pair of my old boots, which she wore all day. Impressive! I guess warm blood is her other super power. She’s like Elsa… “the cold never bothered her anyway”
