Kids grow up way too fast! It's hard to believe that my oldest is already 11 years old (tomorrow...January 15th) and is just a few inches shorter than me. Ack!
Mika is a wonderful daughter, a great big sister, and a caring friend. She's kind, considerate, and loving. She's incredibly smart, a gifted writer, and a great student. I couldn't have asked for a better daughter.
She's grown up a bit since I took this picture. She was so stinking cute back then.
