Time Waits for No One


The girl of the house has turned fifteen years old.  

The girl of the house is on the right, joined by two of her friends.  

Funny how life passes by at lightening speed.  


We took a trip to Climb Nashville and the girls climbed away a couple of hours.  



Food was necessary after all of this activity.  



Parenting, as I have said before - the days are long, but the years are short.

  1. Two things I know for sure . . .
    1) You have a very beautiful daughter, and
    2) You are a great mom. (She gets her beauty from you.)
    Good agenda for the day, m'dear.
    (That's one activity I won't be doing anytime soon.)😏

  3. What a cutie and I have never seen a climbing wall that high. They do grow up and fly away so fast.

  4. She is just beautiful...Happiest Birthday to her.
    Our youngest GRANDgirl turned 14 in Jan. and I just cried my eyes out...she should still be our baby girl..saying things like, "I need a new bailing suit", instead of saying Carlsbad CAVERNS, it was Carlsbad CABINS...those little memories are written down, along with many more, so they will never be lost.

  5. Children do indeed grow-up quickly. Of course, we don't age a year in the process :-)

  6. Great shots and great gals. I always try not to climb higher than my IQ, or greater tan my bounce factor, which ever is less.
