12 year old Lydia
We are em(bracing) the emergence of a teenager in our house. There are fluctuating emotions and outbursts of both joy, goofiness, and meltdowns. We watch her become more and more beautiful, and at the same time lose basic coordination skills (you know how teenagers seem to fall down all the time) and sometimes babbling. She enjoys the experience of Colombia, but I also know that she desperately needs her "group" of friends to surround her, laugh with her, and discover what it is like to become women together. She chose to bring Oreos and Peanut Butter to school just to share with a couple friends. In the evening we ate middle eastern food with our good friends the Walker-Wilsons followed by chocolate chip bars. It was a happy day.
