ah. The very wonderful age of 13. The teen years. Just the beginning of the teen years.
I can't tell you how often I reflect on my own teen years now that my own daughter is keeping ever so close to those same years.
This is Kirstin...she is awesomingly 13. Yes, I know "awesomingly" is not a word, but it kinda is in this case.
13. Such a funny age, such an important start to the journey to adulthood. Kinda crazy. As much as you teach your kids while they are younger, now they come to age where those beliefs and values are put to the test. It's a really scary time as a parent, but I remember quite enjoying my teen years.
Kirstin, you are a very intelligent, strong, beautiful young lady. May you continue along that path and continue with your journey towards FANTASTIC.
