How can it be that my baby is 10? Seriously. The last decade has positively flown by. This past year she took up the guitar, started gymnastics and began collecting vintage video games. We have moved onto high scool level subjects (algebra, gemoetry and chemistry) in school, and she has started reading more grown up books. (We recently finished reading The Hobbit in school and have moved on to Ender's Game). This year she was also diagnosed with Celiac Disease, had to undergo medical tests (which is no fun for any kid), and has started a new gluten-free diet.
For the most part it has been a wonderful year and I hope the next year is just as full of fun, new things (although no more new medical things, please) and lots of happiness. I love you, kid!
