This girl...




SO SO SO proud of this kid! Well, she isn't a kid anymore, she's almost 18. Last night was her Area FFA Banquet. She got her Area Degree, 2nd place in Extemporaneous Speaking in the Area, and was installed as the Area III Historian. I've always been proud of her and proud to be her sister, but I'm just amazed at how grown up she is. It's so hard when I've protected her and helped care for her over the years to realize that soon it's going to be time to let her go. Oh...I'm tearing up just thinking about it. We've always had such a special connection. She's the best kid sister ever and I love her more than she'll ever know!

Way to go Katie Nell! We love you, Taz!

It's hard, but isn't it fun to watch the young ladies they are turning out to be. From experience as having an older sister just remember...she'll always need your protection and care.

I know exactly how you feel. That is one of the great things about being so far apart in age. You feel that you had a small part in what they have become. I feel the same about my Tara.
