Nat is getting braces. We made the trip eastward to this little town called Fosston... maybe you've heard of it? Anyways....
She sat in the front seat - because she's tall enough to sit in the front seat. And she played with the rodeo while I drove. We ate at DQ with a former co-worker. Natalie met some of my former students.
Between appointments, we went to the fabric store where we considered fabrics for multiple friends who are having babieeeeessss..... Natalie helped me with her expert opinion of color coordination.
On our way home, we grabbed a blizzard - she the small, me the mini.
And I realized, how lucky I am. For the next 18-24 months, it'll be just us two - making our monthly visits to Fosston - singing along with the radio, eating blizzards, picking out fabric, and maybe sharing a thing or two about our lives.
