Dear O, 9 years old

Dear O, Sometimes I wonder what you will be doing in ten, fifteen, twenty years. Mostly because you are such a remarkable child. Peculiar maybe too.

Dear K, 11 years old

Dear K, What you did on your birthday says something about you. We hiked eight miles out-and-back to Seven Falls at Sabino Canyon.

Dear O, 8 Years Old

At approximately 6:45am, you bounced into our room. Fully dressed in jeans and a plaid shirt, you pronounced, "We're going horseback riding!" You've been our horse girl for years now so it seemed a very fitting way to celebrate. Tim drove you to a coffeeshop, where you sipped on dark coffee as a special treat, and then […]
