Emily’s birthday was a few weeks ago. She’s now 18 although to me it doesn’t feel like she’s an “adult” yet. In my mind she’s still the giggly little 3 year old girl that ran around the quad and played on the swings when Nancy and I lived in student housing all those years ago. Heck, I still feel like a kid around my parents and I’m now well into middle-age. Although we have the normal struggles that come with raising teens, Emily is a good girl and has a very funny sense of humor when you can actually catch her in a non-teenagery mood.
Congratulations to Emily on her 18th birthday and on receiving a scholarship to Utah State University where she starts next fall!
