Today my firstborn (Tyler) turns 12. WOW, only one year until we hit the teen years. I'm having a little trouble soaking that in. Where has the time gone? Seems as if yesterday we were celebrating the birth of our son and today he is 12. Tyler is getting so tall, he is already looking me eye to eye, and that means that in no time at all he will be passing on over my head.
When our children have a birthday, we let them choose how they want to celebrate their day. Tyler wants to go out to eat tonight, then go bowling and get ice cream afterwards. Man, what a difference between him and his sister Kaelyn. He would rather just have a family celebration, while Kaelyn would choose to have a party with some of her friends. Not sure if it is the age or if it is a girl thing. Anyway, I am so glad he likes to celebrate with his family.
