Arlington turns 12

How in the world do I have a 12 year old.  Wasn't she just a little baby?

On February 15th, Arlington turned 12 years old.  She has become an amazing young lady.  The pre-teen years have been rough.  She has her days, don't get me wrong.  But she is a great kid.  She is kind and caring.  She loves her brother and sister and is still willing to entertain them to help me out.  She is conscientious and a great student.  She works hard, has a close group of friends, and has a fun spirit.  I watch her care for other people even when she doesn't know someone is watching.  She is the first to give a helping hand.  We are lucky to have her as our first born.

We were in Pennsylvania for her birthday this year, so we had a family party.  We had a great turnout and she had a great time.  This year she really wanted a charm bracelet, so her relatives all went together and picked charms that meant something to Arlington and we put together the bracelet.  Hopefully it is something she will treasure for years to come.

Here are a few pictures from the day:
