Alas, our girls are growing up. Our eldest is starting college in the fall...(sigh). Since she is only 16 (turning 17 in the fall), she's going to start her Mechanical Engineering degree at a very good local college and then transfer to a big university for her last 2 years. So, thankfully, she will be able to be at home with us for a couple of more years.
And we still have some years with our youngest. I shouldn't complain--I guess I'm just getting wistful. She's becoming a beautiful little dancer at the ripe, old age of 13. Matt caught this lovely photo of her last week when they had a little performance at her dance studio. I was amazed that she had this beautiful smile in every photo that he took of her. She really has a wonderful stage presence.
