Teresa Turns Seventeen!

Our dear fourth child and third daughter Teresa had her seventeenth birthday yesterday.

She is growing up to be an amazing person (as anyone who knows her will acknowledge). She's already a budding entrepreneur, horse owner (and rider), karate black belt, soccer player, barista, and so many other things. Now she's looking to buy a car (or, maybe, a truck?) with her own money.

Yes, we are proud of her. She is above all a lovely young person.

When I was very young, I was known as "Walter's Brother." More and more these days, I'm known as "Teresa's Dad," which is a happy thing for me.

Yesterday, Facebook took me back through the decade in its "memories" segment, showing me various posts (with various pictures) about Teresa's birthday and "how big she's getting, etc." I decided to string them together, first just for me and Eileen, but I thought it would be fun to share too.

This is what a decade looks like.
