Rebecca's 13th Birthday

It's hard to believe that 13 years has gone by since I was in Southland Hospital with a tiny (actually not so tiny) baby in the midst of all that snow.
We celebrated Rebecca's birthday this year in England with the temperature up around 28 degrees Celsius!
Rebecca stayed the night with her friend Phoebe and we went around on Sunday for a big birthday dinner and an enjoyable afternoon. Rebecca has a big party planned on 18 July as a combined birthday/leaving party and so we have hired the church hall for a disco and supper with lots of her school/swimming/waterpolo and church friends.
It is exciting (and nerve-wracking) seeing Rebecca grow up and continue growing into an independant young woman. We certainly do have our 'moments' but fortunately there are lots of good ones between the tough ones! I have discovered that having teenagers is good for your prayer life!!!
