Happy 13th Birthday Ally!

Ally turns 13 today! These pictures were taken at my parent's house at an early family party. Today, we are at Great Wolf Lodge celebrating with waterslides and fun! :)
A lot of people dread the teenage years, but we have been looking forward to it for a long time! We love teenagers, especially this one! She is such a fun kid - and she's pretty much the right size to share some of my shoes and clothes! She is such a smart kid and she really has a good view of the world. Most importantly, she has a GREAT walk with the Lord, tremendous faith, and a passion for Jesus. Great inner beauty - and we won't even discuss her outer beauty! That part makes Daddy pretty nervous.
I hope all of her teenage years aren't quite as busy as this season is. She was in Anne of Green Gables last week and did a great job. She played a couple of minor characters, I wish I had a better picture of her in her full costume. She has a tough academic schedule, basketball, youth group, and of course we never take a break from softball. This is the season for learning the vital skills of time management and scheduling.
