Ryland made her Daddy so proud today it brought tears to his eyes. This is how it happened.
We were in the van doing errands in town as a family and already regretting that decision, again.
The song "Devil went down to Georgia" is playing and Ryland is singing along. We hear her singing and exchange a glance impressed that she knows more than just the chorus. Actually she knew all words.
I look over and notice Daddy has tears in his eyes and a grin from ear to ear.
"I'm so proud!" he tells me.
Then we laugh until tears are running down both of our cheeks.
