Dear Tracy,

I had fun talking to you at Christen's baby shower tonight. You looked smashing, as you always do, in your green shirt and cute necklace. I always enjoy seeing what you have on. Your sense of style has always been keen, but I think you've taken fashion in a new direction lately, ever since you had Ethan, maybe. Do you think having so many boys compels you to be uber-feminine in your wardrobe? I know I dress more femininely now than I used to, but that's not saying much, because I used to go straight to the boys' half of The Gap to buy my clothes. I think I've come a long way. Anyway, you looked cute.

Tell Jacob I'm sorry I haven't been over yet to initiate him into the big, bad world of cub scouts. I keep thinking about him, but Steve has been out of town this week, so I haven't ventured too many places with all the kids. I'm glad he's excited about scouts. The eight-year-old boys are the best! If you ever get called to be the Wolf Den Leader, promise me you won't turn it down, because it's a calling that seems really horrible at first, but is actually one of the best kept secrets in the church. So fun, so easy! The boys are thrilled to do whatever you come up with -- this summer, we rode bikes, we swam, we made patriotic folded thingamajigs -- and the requirements are a cinch! If only I could unload this ward newsletter gig I have, my life would be a breeze, callings-wise, anyway.

Well, I think you should start a blog. Everybody's doing it. You're quite a sassy and witty young lady, I'm sure you'd have lots to write about. I know I, for one, would love to hear more details about the things you encounter in your workplace that smell like curry. I think everyone would benefit from hearing such stories.

Let's talk soon about carpooling to school. By the way, would you like to help with the Spring Carnival silent auction baskets this year? The PTSA would love to snag you. It might even like to snog you, but I digress. You may not know what that means if you don't read Harry Potter. Did you hear HOW MANY PEOPLE tonight were talking about Stephenie Meyer? Sheesh, that girl has tipped! When you join our book club, you'll be reading all about how things tip. It will be so much fun!

Thanks for reading my blog. It's people like you who make blogging all worthwhile!

Your friend,

I do enjoy reading your blog. My sisters trying to get me to start one as she has one now. It seems to be the in thing. How can I not join. Thanks for all the nice things you said it meant a lot. You are fabulous to.

Love Tracy
