You're Sixteen, You're Beautiful!

My sweetie is now sixteen. I set this to post at exactly the time she was born, May 15 at 2:10AM. She has grown into quite a young lady.

Marina with Hobby

Notice Hobgoblin? He saw her in our yard and called out in a whiny voice, so she decided to take a picture with him.

My young knitter, naturalist, historian, artist, comedienne, philosopher, animal lover. So many talents stuffed into one beautiful package. I wish I could take some credit for how well she's turned out, but she has always been one of those children that is so easy (Except ages 4-6. We think she used up all her teen attitude at that time. You may think it strange that I mention it, but she really doesn't like to be thought of as perfect). She is a natural learner. She loves reading. Everything interests her. If there were more Marinas in the world, it would be a lovely place full of gardens, animals, museums, and hand-knitted hats.

Happy Birthday Marina! I don't know you as well as your mom, but all those wonderful things she's just said fit in exactly with what I know of you!

Happy Birthday!, Marina Angelique
From the moment you stuck your head out into our universe, the universe puzzle was complete. And you are a great reflection of all the wonderful
things in life, including the making of a super proud 'Buelo' I love you.
