To Be Young Again....

I must say that it feels really weird blogging again. It has been awhile but life has been keeping me on my toes to say the least. I wanted to make sure I post today cause it was a very special day....Kansas turned 13!! WARNING....we have a teenager in the house!! Before we celebrated her big day we had to endure our annual field day. The kids went through their usual stations like the 50 yard dash and the tennis ball throw. 
 Trinity and her sweet friends.
 The birthday girl and her buddies. After field day we headed over to one of Kansas' friend's house to for a going-away/birthday party. You may be asking "going-away party"...or it's most likely you already know why cause you are reading my blog which means you are one of my family members! :)
 If you don't know I guess you will have to wait for that post....which is coming soon. :)
 Kansas has been friends with these sweet girls ever since Kindergarten.
 Their faces make me smile. They had an absolute BLAST together today and they
are such good friends. I know they will be friends forever!

 Kansas loves Mickey Mouse and my friend, Debra made her the most amazing cake!!
 One of Kansas' going-away gifts. She will take a little fleur and plaid with her! :)
It's hard to believe it was 13 years ago that we brought her home from the hospital. Life has changed so much and continues to on a daily basis. One thing that has not changed is the fact that I am blessed to be her mom and she is a wonderful daughter. She is sensitive, compassionate and her smile always lights up a room. We love you Kansas and look forward to continuing to watch you grow into a beautiful young woman.
