Congratulations to daughter in law Samantha who started her new job yesterday as a pediatrician in Round Rock. This amazing young woman has spent the last ten years of her life in college/residency, preparing for this day. And always, I might add, at the top of her class. She is going to be upset with me for bragging on her but I just can't help myself. She takes pretty good care of the son, too, and makes him very happy. We are so proud of you and love you bunches!!
Madison found a friend at the party, and learned about a game that is popular in Texas. It is called "washer pitching". The girls were retrieving the washers for the big boys that were playing.
