I remember the day all those years ago –
when her mother turned the SWEET 16.
Yesterday – it was Ella – our second to oldest grand daughter !
When she was little – barely walking – she would run to me –
climb into my lap – or around company – hide behind my legs.
We almost lost her when she was really young –
She got something from a turtle –
and she spent almost a week in the ICU and hospital –
so small and so afraid.
Now today – she has a roomful of turtles – pictures – memento’s
drawings – who would of guessed !
Through the years – from broken foot – to sprained wrist –
To another broken bone in her foot –
She was stepped on in soccer ( her love)
To coming down the wrong way on it –
Sitting out two years of playing soccer –
to coming named as MVP on her JV team –
as a Sophomore –
Now she is once again ready for travel soccer !
Turning 16 – drivers permit
about to start her Junior year –
and after TWO YEARS of sitting out travel soccer
She tried out and made the team as a Midfielder!
And – like her sister – can run !
Without practice – she can run a sub 6 minute mile !
In the picture above – a box of LEGO’S – special box –
And a letter from the both of us
She loves Star Wars – and this is a Star wars lego.
The note reads – you are going to Hollywood Studios in Florida.
You will board a airplane – fly down – stay a week with us –
And spend the day in the new STAR WARS AMUSEMENT PARK –
Ella – like Maddy when she turned 16 ( she swam with the Manatee’s )
will celebrate in Florida with us –
a memory they will both remember for a long time.
Today – her and her friends will tube down a river
Soon – in a few weeks – travel soccer practice will begin.
Her older sister will leave for college to begin her college soccer practice.
But – for one day – as it was those many – many years ago for her mother
SWEET 16 !!!!
