Today is a a very special day. It’s Brianna’s 10th birthday!
Yep, the oldest grandchild has hit the double digits.
On one hand, that seems hard to believe. But after seeing her grow and blossom over the last few years, I can totally believe it.
It’s fun having a granddaughter. Especially one who likes to do word search puzzles. And who likes to help me cook stuff. Who is such a good big sister. And helpful to her Mom. Who has such a good sense of humor, likes bike hikes, loves to read, digs Legos…
I could go on and on. Except I don’t have all day.
And I have to share some pictures of the not-so-little-anymore kid that is always so full of smiles.
This year has been a difficult one for Brianna. Not for Brianna specifically, she’s actually had a great year, but for all of the kids in general. Their Dad is deployed. And they miss him. But Brianna has been handling it like a champ.
That picture was taken during the weekend she spent alone with me at the WV place. We had a blast.
This picture, obviously, was from one of her soccer games.
And that last picture was taken when I dropped her off at her first ever sleepaway camp. She was going to spend the weekend with total strangers and wasn’t even one little bit apprehensive.
That’s Brianna. She’s happy, friendly, outgoing, smart…
Again, I could go on. She’s a great kid. And she has fabulous parents.
Happy Birthday, Brianna!
I look forward to many, many more good years to come.
