My, my, time flies.
And, my sweet oldest daughter can almost fit my shoes I found out when we went shopping last Friday. She complained her shoes were too tight (women's size 7-1/2), so we got her some shoes that fit and she's only a half size from fitting my shoes, and for your information I wear a women's size 9. I believe she's got her daddy's toes, but the length of her feet are likely long-Lauret. I have the shoe size of women who are generally several inches taller than I am. My grandma Lauret and her daughter both wear shoe size 11/12, but they are also much taller than I am at 5'11. At her growth rate, Lily may even pass me up! I didn't really think that would ever happen, but there is a chance. She isn't necessarily tall for her age, but, I'm on the shorter size at 5'5, and both Steve and I have tall women in our family lines. We shall see in the next few years!
Amara is faster than me. That may not come as a big surprise to anyone, seeing as my running skills are pretty rusty. However, she could beat me at a foot race ever since she was 4, I think. That little girl is "fun-sized" and has a remarkable rotational velocity that can spark her legs into speeds I've always been amazed at. Next time you're with her, challenge her to a foot race. It's so fun to watch her run!
So what am I gonna do? I'm gonna love these girls and improve the precious time I get with them. The years haven't been many, but the time seems far gone. A great deal happens in meager spans of minutes, with memories the only lasting threads woven in the fabric of our lives.
