It is not every day a person becomes a teenager, but for Erin this day was special. It was noon by the time I saw her, which meant her day was already half over, but we did have lunch together at Cafe Rio. How she was able to finish that whole burrito, I will never know; but then again does a 72 year old ever know what the younger generation is capable of doing?
Let me answer that before going on. Probably not!

After she finished eating, her mother rushed her back to the middle school, and I understand that the kids in her choir class sang "happy birthday" to her.

The party was a duel birthday celebration. The other person honored was Sydney Palmer. She is one year old now. At the end of this posting is footage of Mike charming her. You have got to click on the link. I promise you that if you do, all of your worldly concerns will be forgotten, and that joy will also fill your heart for a couple of minutes.
|Even teens like cereal.|
I actually thought of trying to break my tradition of giving a box of cereal to the grand-kids for birthdays, but alas as I walked by the Lucky Charms display, I gave in. After all, St. Pats day is almost here, right?
I had to give her a little book on God's word for Teens. She likes to read, and this book gives short, concise biblical advice to young people, on a variety of moral issues.
Okay! Here is the you-tube link.
