See that girl on the left? The one with the long, shiny, dark hair? That is what seventeen looks like. 17!!!!


I know that I say this every year but wow does that ever sound old. I think it’s because she’s the oldest. Everything with her is the first and the sense of amazement never fades and never gets old.

She says that seventeen is no big deal. It’s not really a milestone per se. There is no card for 17 and aside from being able to for to R rated movies without me, there really isn’t any change in status. None attached to the number 17 specifically but, in reality, there is ever so much that is notable.

This kid is amazing! Outstanding! She works hard in school, she holds down a few (yes, more than one) jobs, and she is active in youth groups, honor societies and school activities. I don’t know how she does it. I do know that I love her more every day and I feel so lucky to be her mom.
