The new woman in our family
The new woman in our family
I’m about to get a new sister! My brother James is marrying Kathryn in one week and Bob and I will have a new sister. Neither of us had sisters until our brothers started getting married. Bob has three brothers and I have five and after December 30th, we’ll have four sisters between us.

Growing up in the boy’s world of running, jumping and climbing trees was good for me. It gave me the fearless tomboy attitude I need to work with horses. But as I grew older I began to crave the company of women.

And then I started getting sisters! I am in awe of how well the world works as I prepare to welcome Kathryn to the family and into my heart!
