Jenna is 16 years old today!
We all got up really early this morning to give Jen her gifts, make her a special breakfast and then take her to scouts to write her oars charge exam. I know… “An exam?” you say, “on her birthday?” The thing is, she has been looking forward to achieving this advancement for ages and the date was set for the 9th of June, her birthday. She really doesn’t mind though, she was so excited to join the other sea scouts who will also be doing their practical and written exams today. (I did try and talk her out of it a few weeks ago but then she explained how important it was to her and this made me feel very proud of her dedication).
Erin baked her the most wonderful birthday cake, I’m sure Jen will love it when she sees it tonight.
It’s difficult to fathom how quickly time has passed, 16 years ago you were so tiny and now you have grown into a beautiful and confident young woman. We love you Jen and are so blessed to know you. xxx
