Yesterday my eldest daughter turned 16 years old... WOW! I still can`t believe I have a 16 yeard old! I met my husband just before I turned 16 and now I have a 16 year old with her Learners permit entering into her last year of highschool. 

When your kids are young everyone always tells you how fast your kids will grow up and to cherish every moment you have. Now I have become one of those parents because time seems to go by faster and faster the older our children get. This last year of highschool that my eldest is about to enter, will go by much quicker than we would like. Before we know it, we will be taking her to University. We are very proud of her and know this is just another one of the stages in life...

So I will be like all those parents before me and ask that you truly cherish every moment even the small ones. Take the time to just listen and make the moments last because before you know it they are all grown up!
