Just wanted to dedicate this post to Firstborn, of whom I am so proud! I feel like this year I can stop holding my breath. She is what I would say, officially launched (!) as far as getting herself where she needs to be, getting her school work done, making wise decisions, just taking charge of life. She's taken on a tutoring job this year, as well as managed basketball practices three times a week. It's nice to have a 9th grader! She was asked to play her saxophone for our church's Christmas program. It was beautiful! I love you and am proud of you, Firstborn!
