Phone Conversation


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:

    Beautiful photos which will become only more precious with the passage of time. It goes so quickly.

  4. SuzieQ says:

    I’m sure that she is just as proud of you! :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!
