My granddaughter is twelve years old today! I just can’t believe it! She is so smart and beautiful! I wish I could spend more time with her. She’s going to be “pulling away” soon. I already understand that she had an opportunity to spend a day trip to the Alabama Football spring A-Day game with her other Grandmother last weekend. A day trip she has been going on for at least 10 of the last 12 years. And this year, she opted out, preferring a sleepover with girlfriends instead. And so it starts.
Last summer she spent a whole week with me and Grandpa. We had her all to ourselves! She attended a drama camp during the day, then every afternoon we would do something fun; swimming, shopping, the movies… But this year, she already has a summer jam packed with all of the activities and obligations of a preteen.
Even today, her official birthday, she is off touring the Big Apple with her middle school choir group!
Happy Birthday Beauty!
