Fifteen years ago today Finn entered our lives and we have been madly in love with him ever since his arrival. It is hard to believe this gushy bundle of baby grew into this handsome young man, but I am happy to report Finn has not lost his happy-go-lucky nature. He remains quick to smile and laugh at himself and others. More importantly, Finn has a new found maturity and focus at 15. He is rapidly growing into an honorable man who is trustworthy, dedicated and charming. We are completely thrilled with with the person he is becoming and proud of his burgeoning work ethic, leadership skills and devotion school and family. He is one amazing young man.
Happy Birthday Finn!
Our lives are forever better for having met you 15 years ago.
With Emma performing this evening I was delighted to discover so many folks wanted to catch the show! I threw together a quick dinner and made sure our supportive friends had a full belly and a little wine before the show. It was a special meal and a memorable evening!
I know it has become unpopular to tell parents of young children that time flies by and you should enjoy every minute of the precious time you have with your kids, but man-o-man it is hard for me not to feel how fleeting parts of this parenting gig really are these days. My little dancer is a heartbeat away from selecting a college and tonight she performs her senior solo in public for the first time. Performing a solo at her studio is a well earned rite of passage and one that Emma takes quite seriously She marched in the door at the Academy of Movement and Music when she was just three years old and now, nearly 15 years later, I cannot believe it is already her turn to take this bow of sorts. I am just saying time really does fly by; I cannot wait to see where she lands next!
