    19 years?  Where has the time gone?

    This sweet girl was brought to our family by nothing less than a miracle.

    Her story is amazing and so is she!

    She takes animation courses online and really loves anything that deals with art.

    Her hair color changes often and always looks amazing!

    She was recently accepted into Aveda Institute’s esthiology program.  She has always had a passion for makeup and skin care.  She is excited to see how these classes help her in her SFX makeup.  I am looking forward to her helping me with my skin care.  (Hint. Hint.)  8 sisters to practice on.  She’s going to be light years ahead on volunteers to practice her craft.

    She has the extra benefit of taking a very small class (15 kids) with one of them being her very good friend, Grace.

    She’s been friends with Peter for years and years now.

    She loves hanging out with her friends at church.

    She loves her puppy, Snickers, that she’s had forever.

    And her new puppy, Ripley.

    We celebrated her big day by eating out at HuHot.

    She doesn’t like cake so instead went for the “taco” birthday cake.

    Maisey and Hope both LOVE to draw and will draw any where, including at the doctor’s appointment for their yearly physical.  Birthday buddies share birthday physicals.  We know how to have fun in this house.  hahaha

    She went out to eat with her homeschool advisor to celebrate her birthday, getting into Aveda, and her upcoming graduation.  Ms. Deb has been with her since the beginning of her schooling.   It’s funny how people come into our lives and become like family.

    We are excited to watch her head into adulthood.  We feel unbelievably blessed that we have been given the joy of parenting her for 19 years.

    Happy birthday Hopey!
