Thirteen years have passed between these two photographs. This little angel is now fifteen and a half years old. This cute as a button toddler turned into a beautiful young lady with a giving, tender heart. She’s very smart, quite talented and a whole lot taller than her grandmother. She plays the piano and the marimba beautifully (it’s an instrument that looks like a gigantic xylophone and sounds amazing). And she swims competitively. Yes, I know I sound like a proud grandmother! Today was grandparents day at her school. Grandpa Doug and I were so very happy to be there with her today.
