Today is Amber’s 10th birthday.

I was trying to think of some of the things she’s done in the past year, besides having a lot of fun with family and friends. She had drawings in a few art shows and went to a day camp at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History this past summer. She went to her first sleepover and had a couple at our house. She was in the Christmas play at church and stayed up ’til midnight for the first time on New Year’s Eve.

She really is a great kid, even if she drives me crazy on occasion.
