Happy 18th Birthday, Cari

Today is a HUGE day in our little part of the world. Our granddaughter Cari turns 18.
She has gone from big sister to adult in the blink of an eye.


 
She is pictured above with her "little" brother Michael (who now towers above her).
She was ten and he was six when these photos were taken. 


Here she is this morning, with our black Lab Harley, just before hurrying out the door on her way to school.
 
 
 
Last night she filled out an application for college next year, where she will start a new chapter in her busy life.

 
Cari is a young woman on the move!
Happy birthday, Cari, we all love you!

    1. Hi Becky,
      Thanks--and you are right on the money. I am so ready for the heat to go away and fall to arrive. And I was grateful for the rain yesterday, even though Michael's soccer game was postponed.

  4. Donna--

    Both those two teens look like kind kids. I'm sure Cari had a wonderful birthday.

    I'm with you. Sweater weather, come quickly!
