Liz is a teenager!! Woohoo!

We have another teenager in the house!  (That makes four at the moment:-)

Here she is at the Presque Island Lighthouse near Alpena, Michigan.  This is the tallest lighthouse open to the public on the Great Lakes.

Anyway, back to Liz.  Born less than two months from my forty-second birthday, Liz is a special blessing to our family.  She was born perfectly healthy (although not the easiest pregnancy for me-- she would have been worth it even if it had been many times as hard...no question.)

She has a colorful personality.  She's very creative and has a great sense of humor.  Warm and very outgoing, she is loved by everybody.

And... she is the only one of my children who decidedly favors my side of the family in appearance.  In fact, she bears a striking resemblance to my mother.  And that would be both in appearance AND personality.    It's very funny.  My mother who had Alzheimer's for many, many years never really knew her.  But Liz knew Grandma and was very attached to her, even in her very debilitated state.

Anyway, Happy Birthday, Liz.  I can't believe you're thirteen!!!!!

Congratulations on your new teenager. At one point, I had seven teenagers. It was the happiest time in raising my kids. You can communicate with them as adults, help shape their thinking, and learn from them. Enjoy these marvelous years. They occur only once. (They say the teenage years are tough -- you can't prove it by me.)
