Had real technical problems with the blog yesterday.
Had things been working well I would have shared this picture yesterday on Kate's birthday. Here she is at the ripe old age of 5. This photo was taken on the day that James, Kate and I became a family. At the reception she ate way too many See's chocolate mints, but somehow didn't become ill. She danced and twirled and almost caught the bridal bouquet.
There is something that is very old soul about Kate and something that is just a bit mischievous. And here she is all wrapped up in the sweetness of childhood. She is now a mother but in some ways hasn't changed a bit, except now she is wrapped up in the sweetness of motherhood.
"My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky;
So was it when my life began
So is it now I am a man;
So be it when I shall grow old,
Or let me die!
The Child is father of the Man;
I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety".
