Today is Francie's 13th birthday, although I have felt like we've been living with a teenager long before now. I spend half my time wishing she would stop growing and the other half wishing she was grown already!
All kidding aside, Francie really is a great kid who is fast becoming a fun young adult. She is smart, funny, responsible, loves learning, and is (generally!) helpful with her siblings. We think she's pretty cool.
Happy birthday, Francie! We love you!
