After Morgan took feed out to the animals tonight (her evening chore), she posed for about 30 minutes chattering away about her birthday, with Casper. She is on the brink of 17. SEVENTEEN! How is that possible? She has one more year of high school then she is planning to attend WVU with Weston and their whole passel of friends. (I like knowing Big Brother will be on hand!) I offered her a new cell phone for her birthday (which is next week). She’s been researching the top phones and which she should choose. She’s attached at the hip to her phone, of course.

SEVENTEEN! My youngest! I weep. And am so proud of her.

    It doesnt seem possible that she is nearly 17, where does the time go?

    I have not been able to post any comments for several days, or even pm one of the mods, is there a problem with the system?
    Thank you

    Reminds me of a line from a Stevie Nicks song … “on the edge of seventeen”. She is so beautiful, I am weeping with you, Suzanne. :heart:

    She had grown into such a beautiful young lady. Wow 17 where does the time go?? This is an exciting time for her. My own daughter is 18 and just started college and its fun to hear all about her day and realize she is her own person. I had fun watching your kids all grow up as well. You are a very lucky mom to have such a great family. :)

    It must be a fantastic feeling to have a teen develop into a wonderful young lady! Congrats!

    Does Casper have a sore at the base of his tail? Our barn cat had something like that.

    Remember the song from The Sound of Music: “I am 16 going on 17…..”, sung while the oldest girl danced in the gazebo?

    And I remember when you referred to her as just “14″ in your blog!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
