  • Daughter grows up so quickly

     It finally dawned on me. My little girl was growing up.

    It was on a Tuesday afternoon. It was election day and I was taking my daughter, Amanda Jean, to the polling place for the first time.

    She was already legal to drive. But now she was legal to allow her views to be expressed on a paper ballot.

    Not only was she able to vote but she was also quickly approaching graduation day.

    You ponder what your children might become. With Amanda, that future has definitely not been determined.
