Emma turned fourteen on Saturday. We all went out to Ambrosia and gave her a variety of mostly hand made gift certificates. We took her to the art store to pick up supplies, with Sam and I patiently waiting as Isa, Berry, and Emma browsed and touched and fiddled with all the pens, paper, inks, and so on. There were a couple video game gifts that Emma has been slowly working on.
I think Emma's year has been better than before. She's made it through middle school and looking forward to focusing on academics next year. Hopefully she has a good time.
