Seventh Heaven


I am certain that when I gave birth to three daughters, I was not imagining how much time I would be spending on the athletic fields. But, it’s true, pointe shoes were replaced by cleats and tutus became jerseys. It‘s a good thing we love to watch them bound across the lacrosse field, because I think we have watched at least 300 games so far!


For the seventh time in eight years, our varsity girls’ lacrosse team won the Central Texas Division Championship! Yea!! Lucky for the team, Margaret could call on her big sister, Ellen, (artist/daughter of this blog) to create the celebratory tee shirt. Since we were headed to the State Championships, Ellen based her hip tee design on Jasper Johns‘ States series, and it was a winner on so many levels, not the least of which is that the girls loved it. Subtly, under each numbered win is hidden the year that the team won … starting, not coincidently, with the year that Ellen’s team won the first championship!
