Today is January 20, 2014. In eleven days, the girls will turn twelve. I find that so hard to believe on so many levels. And yet, the time has also flown.
I remember twelve. Due to my August birthday, I was in seventh grade that year. It was a good year, and full of changes. Both mental and physical. When I look at the girls, midway through their first year of middle school, I can see some of those changes taking place.
Their faces are more mature; the books they choose to read are darker and more sophisticated; they stay up later; they question me more. They are, indeed, middle school students on the cusp of turning twelve.
I'm so curious to see what twelve will bring.
