Essy is Eight!

Esther Alexis-Jane Braden is eight today.  She is the "daughter of my right arm".  She is the joy of her father and his most willing and cheerful helper.  She is the toughest, funnest, loyalest little sister you could ask for.

Please notice the tie rope.... I didn't let Gabe take Essy for a canoe on his own at 7.

Esther, you are so blessed to have a daddy who loves you as much as your dad does.
