This weekend our friends the Browns were visiting. Leslie and Stephen were in our bedroom talking with Steve when Katie walked in with Delaney and Melana.
"See it right there," she said, pointing to Steve's head. "That's his crazy eye." She spoke as if she were giving a museum tour.
Last week she told me that Daddy has the kind of cancer that gets better because "we're all helping him feel better." She loves to sit next to him in his bed for meals. And when he coughs, she runs over to pat his chest gently and say, "Take it easy, Daddy."
She starts soccer practice this week -- her first time to play on a team. Her only other participatory soccer experience has been the Kick the Damm Spot event early this summer. Because of that, she's insistent that every goal kicked during her soccer season "will be to help Daddy feel better."
