My Baby

Look at sweet Adeline....


with her brother and sister ...

Fast forward twenty three years....

I am so proud of this gal.

She is...

smart (was accepted to 5 out of 6 graduate schools)...
pretty (no explanation here)
kind (keeps in contact with many friends including those from her past)...
friendly (doesn't hesitate to call for a party)...
caring (looks out for her family and friends)
talented (sings, dances, plays piano)..
athletic (swims, bikes and hikes)
(such as hiking Half Dome in one day, including driving )...
adventurous ( sky diving and cave exploring)...
a traveler (Peru, Dominican Republic, Spain, Italy)...
a leader (senior class pres in high school, BYUSA in college)
and spiritual (loves the gospel in our church)

She packed her earthly possessions (mostly clothes) in these two suitcases
(there is an additional carry-on duffel bag and backpack in the other room)

and took off on a plane to Washington D.C. to attend graduate school at Georgetown University.

How did time fly by so quickly?

I will miss my "baby".

When our kids grow up and make these "grownup" decisions we as parents pause - go back in time to remember the beginning when they were so dependent on us and now the wings have been clipped and they fly. I am always thankful they always return home because that is where we begin again. Wishes for great adventures Adeline!

You have described Adeline well. I am trying to imagine her with those bags going on the D. C. train. It will be great to hear her experiences. Time does flllllly by
