Best Wishes for the Holidays
I want to tell you the story of my Christmas Cactus. It arrived in my rehab room last winter. It was in full bloom and everyone that came into the room the first time commented on it and then checked its progress each following time they came in. I enjoyed its spunky beauty!!!!! By the time I took it home it was through blooming.
I have heard from several sources that there is a third family athlete involved in sports from the Henderson family. Rachel is doing Basketball again this year. She says she is having more fun this year, because she feels she can actually play!!
Kim's band concert was this week. The last song was a mass band piece with a bell choir from a town church: " I Hear the Bells on Christmas Day," with narration by the history teacher. They have a very talented director (and group) who did a beautiful job.
I talked to Becky on the phone last night. She has just recovered from what appeared to be food poisoning or perhaps "the flu," anyway, as we would say down here. She has been feeling puny!! She has been taking her semester tests this week (will have to make up the one she missed because of the yucks). She is doing great -- pulling down a B average!! Great Job.
I like this quote from Weston's description of his Thanksgiving: "Wyatt, Ben, Rylie and I spent the day at my Mom's house with her and my stepdad. Most of my day was spent eating, watching football on TV, eating, playing card games, eating, visiting, and eating." Then he commented, "Did you notice a pattern there? -- I think I am still full this morning from eating so much yesterday. And the best part is I get to do it all over again at Patty and Curt's." And according to what I heard, he did!!!
Ben (H) tells me that everything is going great for him. He is in the midst of his finals, too, of course. The first half of the school year has really gone fast for him. (I would think he wouldn't have much time to sit around and be bored!!!!!!) I haven't heard yet what classes he will be taking, but suppose he will be busy!
Other Family Events
Our Piano Recital is over here at Brookline Station, Missouri, and it was the best one ever. The kids were great, the lunch delicious and the visiting that followed was long and fun. Lots of compliments were given and appreciated by all involved.
