11 year old turns 12

February 28, 2012

12 year old about a month ago.... when she was still 11.

Yesterday our 11 year old became a 12 year old.

She is an amazing girl and keeps surprising us with her willingness to try new things….. even when she knows she won’t be the best.

That’s why the photo…

….that and because the ones I took yesterday were not good.

It’s a joy watching her grow and mature, ask hard questions about life and the universe, and use her mind and heart together to become a change maker.

We thank God for this gorgeous girl.

Happy birthday 12 year old.
