Happy Birthday Kiley....

Today is Kiley's 24th birthday!!!
Kiley and Nicolas easter 2007

Twenty Four years ago today...Roby was graduating it was April 19, 1985. On April 20th our daughter Kiley was born. She weighed in at 8 lbs 14 oz, Tarin her sister was so happy to have a sister. I have fond memories of Kiley as a child she loved to laugh and smile and quickly gained the nickname smiley Kiley. She will graduate at the end of the week and be a big girl! I don't know how I feel about that, on one hand I am so pleased that she has accomplished so much on the other hand I am sad...for me...not her! I am excited for her as she has so much ahead of her, she is so capable and ready to move forward, soooo I will do all that I can to support her and push her if necessary. (That must be how a mother bird feels when she pushes her little babies out of the nest.) Here is a brief walk down memory lane. Ok the memory is backward, remember I am still in the learning phase of this blog.

We always knew Kiley would do great things.

She has always been a girl with many aspirations.

Oh how I miss those recitals age 8.

Kiley was so cute when she was 7.
