Papa’s World – SWEET 16 our grand daughter ELLA !

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 !

Ella Myers

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.

in Pencil drawn by Ella Myers

Now today – she has a roomful of turtles – pictures – memento’s

drawings – who would of guessed !

TINY as her dad calls her

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 !

TINY no more.
Almost as tall as Sherry who is 5 ‘ 9 “

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 !

With her tiny admirers

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 –

Reading the letter
A Taco holder made to look like a dinosaur

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.

Sweet 16 birthday party

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 !!!!

ELLA ( tiny ) MYERS

First night here – walk to the Dam of the Lake Holiday –

Where one car and chairs were placed around NOON !

You have to do this because hundreds of cars and twice as many people

Park here to watch the fireworks at dusk !

And a lot more than that are at the beaches and club house !

The water around the point – is crowded by 50 to 100 Boats !

MOR MOR

” LOOK AT ALL THOSE DECKS ” on that house she exclaims !

Five or six decks!

Sherry has the field glasses –

and bringing into view the houses with all the decks !

DECKS

When we arrived – Mike and I drove the second car down –

The area had become almost full

Cars and chairs everywhere.

The reflection off the water –

A few kids swimming –

Our view sitting on the dam
Ella and Maddy

Getting excited as the darkness sets in.

Maddy and Ella

Conversing with neighbors –

Watching the boats –

Wishful thinking on buying a Pontoon Boat !

Sarah sitting on the rocks
