August brings 100 degree temperatures, volleyball, back to school planning…but most importantly it’s brings my Tristyn’s birthday. She turned fourteen this year. How is it even possible that I my baby is 14? Tristyn feels our home with so much joy. I’m so thankful for her. I’m so glad we still have her at home and that I still get to homeschool her. She didn’t want a party this year but instead wanted to spend the day with her best friend and go shopping. We had a family dinner after her volleyball game.
When most people meet her they wonder if she ever talks….until they get to know her. (Seriously, she never stops talking!) She is an observer, quiet until she knows you, witty, sensitive, sweet and has such a huge heart.
I asked Tristyn to make a list of her favorite things. At 14, these are her current favorite things.
playing with Toby
spending time with our family
spending time with friends
Tristyn, you are a such joy! I love being your mom. Fourteen is such an amazing age. I know this year will be filled with so many wonderful memories. Daddy and I pray you will pursue Christ passionately. We pray you will love others well and always stand up for what is right. I hope your heart will remain sensitive. Surround yourself with friends who will sharpen you and run towards Christ with you. Remain pure of heart and guard your eyes and heart. Keep your eyes on Christ, read His word, write His words on your heart. Embrace life and live courageously.
I love you!
