Still Sweet, Still Sixteen...







Did anyone out there realize that Kelsi is 16 and has been for more than 6 months? Ok, some of you may know, but it is no thanks to me. I hog-tied her back then and made her pose for some pictures (not her favorite activity). I fully intended to post about her 16th birthday but alas, I never did. I am repenting and posting about her now.

Here are some things I love and appreciate and admire about Kelsi

~ easy to have a conversation with
~ has her own style
~ isn't overly concerned about how others see her
~ a hopeless romantic
~ loves to learn
~ a deep thinker
~ beautiful
~ truthful
~ good sense of humor
~ not embarrassed about her family (too much)
~ has a VERY creative mind
~ feels deeply
~ resourceful

~ stunning eyes
~ careful
~ loving
~ keeps her cool (mostly)
~ good student
~ chooses the right
~ solid and stable
~ good example
~ talented in piano playing, movie editing, writing, drawing and scriptural knowledge.
At the risk of sounding too much like a proud and pleased mother, I'll curtail my list. But my heart is full and my tears are overflowing thinking about my sweet, loving 16 1/2 year old. I love you Kelsi!

P.S. She gets her braces off starting in tomorrow! Woot! Woot!

Kelsi melted my heart at girls camp when she said, "Sister Sowards..... I miss you." She's a beautiful young woman inside & out.
