Sweet Sixteen!

Well we certainly have a lot of spring chickens around here. It's birthday fever with 4 birthdays in a matter of 6 weeks. How did that happen?

We most recently celebrated a momentous milestone--Eden is 16! The long anticipated birthday brings hopes for a full year ahead. Eden currently has a permit and has been practicing driving all winter long. She hopes to earn her driver's license soon (maybe this summer?). She has been babysitting for years, but is actively looking for her first "real" job. This fall she will join Micah at the technical college for her junior year of high school. This summer she is looking forward to participating in Operation St. Cloud, our youth team's local mission assignment. The days in the meantime can't seem to pass fast enough. She's stretching her wings, ready to fly!

 Eden had friends over for games and food on Saturday night. Then she and I made her favorite whopper ice cream cake on Sunday.
