Michelle is 12

We celebrated Michelle turning 12. We have gotten very low key with birthdays lately. We went to eat at San Jose and came home to presents and cake. 

She must be getting old, it took a long time for her to blow out those 12 candles.

Benjamin helped make the cake.

We made two cupcakes to do a taste test.

I don't have a picture but he did a big taste test on the cake too. He got out a spoon and took a big chunk out. We covered it up with lots of frosting!

It is hard to believe that Michelle is now 12, next year she will be a teenager! It seems as though the years go faster and faster the older I get. Last year was very rough for her and I am praying for a better year this year. 

She will be going into the 7th grade this year and is now 4 ft 10 inches tall. She didn't want me to give her weight! She is right between Joselin and Sarah in height at this time.

Today she had to go get a shot before entering the 7th grade. Tricare keeps fighting us on putting her at the doctors office with everyone else so she had a new doctor. They asked all the basic medical history questions and of course I had no history on the parents. I honestly don't know anything about their medical history, I have no clue if we should be watching for any type of medical issues. All I know is that they both were drug addicts. Not a very good history to know. 

At this moment my cluster of kids are 10, 11, 12 and 13.
