Interesting. God must have known what he was doing when he gave you daughters and us a son. I wouldn't know what to do with the crafting stuff she brought home.
Enjoy your walk towards independence. Remember, the day she was born you agreed to work hard as a parent to put yourself out of a job. I think you just got a promotion!

I wish there was a 'like' button :)

How funny!

Sounds like a typical early teen. :) I could say "I remember when..." but that would just highlight the 14 years (and a wee bit more) older than her I am :) Enjoy the journey Toben - God's got a plan of training for you both - wait to see it unfold. :)


I'm so glad you posted - I was actually thinking about Audrey yesterday as I was driving home from work. I remember walking the 3/4th of a mile to Walmart as a young teen with my sisters - such a thrill to be out of the house without parents. I never thought about the courage my parents had to have in order to let us go.

I hope Audrey has fun blinging out her flip flops and t-shirt!


I like the cadet on your charm bracelet header. Go USAFA!

You looked so fine, and your wonderful clogs only added to the perfection; I wish every one of your readers could have seen how great you looked!

Speaking from a daughter with a father who would do the same to protect me, That is a wonderful thing you do for Audrey! Safety is certainly a MUST.
