The Book of Jenna
Infancy and Toddlerhood
Fitful infant. Never slept. Only wanted Momma. Even Daddy wouldn't do.
Delightful Toddler! Once in motion, her tears stopped. The world was her oyster.
Another circle is added to her life experience.
Loved Preschool! Loved new friends!
Loved Bugs and other creepy crawlies!
Yet another circle is added.
A fine experience.
They figured out what we already knew---she's crazy smart and thinks outside the box.
A few emotional hurdles.
Circle Four is added.
Overall, a good experience. Much better than many girls have in Middle School.
A couple boyfriends. Several new girlfriends.
Some heartache. Some sadness.
Some elation. Some amazing adventures.
New York City, for heaven's sake!
Circle 5, her life expands like ripples in pond.
School work gets harder. She's up to the test.
Figures out what she 'wants to be when she grows up.'
Making plans. Cementing friendships.
Still with #3. He's pretty wonderful.
First paying job.
They want her back next summer.
"She's a hard worker, just like us."
Wasn't she just a baby?
Did time really fly like I was told it would?
Today we leave for Iowa.
Soon, she will add another circle to her life experience.
On Saturday, she will spread her wings and fly.
Is she prepared? Yes, a resounding yes!
We're so very, very proud of who she is and where she's headed.
We love her truly, madly, deeply!
Are we prepared?
The house will be quieter, darker, without her in it.
She is a light in our lives that we will miss having access to every day.
Thank goodness for Skype and texting!
I can't wait to see what amazing things she'll do in this chapter of her life.
Knowing her, it will be a wonderful adventure.
Love you baby!
Have a blast and maybe study a little bit. :)
