Today is Grace's 14th birthday! She had her weekly Writing and Science classes and then I took her out for a special lunch and to get her make-up done at Macys. Since she is allowed to wear it now, we then went to Target to stock up on some less expensive items.
She opened a few gifts later this afternoon and now is hanging out with a friend and looking forward to a rare mid-week sleepover.
It's been a wonderful day so far and I'm looking forward to her 14th year. So far, this teenager thing isn't as scary as I thought it would be!
