Now Ella Got Old

The good thing about summertime birthdays is that we all hit around the same time. My sweet elderchild turned 11 recently. She's about to start middle school, and that's completely terrifying. But the full teenage stress hasn't hit yet so she can still be seen in public with us. We're in a bit of a sweet spot, not sure how long that's going to last.

Opening presents

Kelley, Mickey, and Neena

She was actually happy with that one

This spry preteen is a whirlwind of activity. She never stops moving. She is getting quite good at basketball and is looking forward to playing for the church team in the fall. She's also starting to swim some but we're still trying to find the right team. She is becoming so independant it's getting harder for us to keep up with her anymore.

Ella got a canopy too

Now she never leaves
Happy birthday little girl!

Wow, their beds are so cool! I would have loved something like that when I was young! I can't believe that she is already 11 years old. My Godson is turning 12 later this month and it's just mind boggling because it seems like it wasn't that long ago that he was born. Time flies way too fast these days!
