Today our sweet second daughter, who goes by "Bookgirl" on this blog, is turning 17. I can't believe how the time has flown!
This post is just a "placeholder," though. Unfortunately, our dear, sweet birthday girl is down with a seriously nasty stomach flu. Poor girl--she can't have her birthday dinner or cake for a few days--doctor's orders! She is resting and enjoying some of her birthday gifts, and we're planning to resume the celebration of her birthday in a few days, when she feels better.
I mentioned the birthday blog post to her, and she said she'd really like to come out here in a couple of days to post some of her recent artwork. So watch for this post to be updated when our Bookgirl is feeling better!
