My little sister is leaving for college on Friday. To celebrate we hosted Taco Tuesday at our house last night, and had a little Roast in her honor. Everyone had so many sweet and funny things to say about Ali. Brent remembers her wearing a little Tiger suit at all the football games when we were in high school, my MIL mom remembers the first time she saw her eating a bag of popcorn in the bleachers, I remember the day she was born, my dad remembers the day I almost cut her ear off when I caught her hair in the hand mixer. I had blocked that last one from my memory, but now it is oddly comforting to know that even 15 years ago I had a lack of SKILLS in the kitchen!
My sister is truly one of the most pure and genuine people I have ever met. She has a heart for God and where he leads I know she will follow. Brent said last night that she was the "real deal," and I couldn't agree more. In a world where so many people are trying to be someone other than themselves it is refreshing to see someone like Ali who is perfectly content just being her unique self. Being different is a beautiful thing sister!
Here are a few pics from last night.
