The day after we returned home from the beach Sydney turned SEVENTEEN!!! Goodness, can y'all believe that? Her birthdays roll around much too quickly these days. Sydney had a low key celebration this year at the pool with her friends. I'm bracing myself for the next year. It's a big year! I'm hoping I can hold it together as she crosses all the lasts of high school off her list. My prayer is she has the most exciting and successful year, but that is creeps by super slow so I can soak up every moment with her.
