Ahhhhh... Seventeen...

I can't believe it, then again I can. I remember when Superman and I would sit on the couch trying hard to imagine the day when I our two year old would be this old. Starting the end of her official schooling in our home and moving into the next step that the Lord has for her.

Pray for her if you know her. She has many wonderful choices and options to consider. She'll be helping me teach our youngest two anatomy next year and helping out in many different
churches with VBS programs this summer.

School Girl and I wanted to surprise her with a themed "cake" this year. It's actually cereal treats. Here is our first try at making chocolate modeling clay. I'll post a recipe soon. We used white and colored it.

Molding the cereal treats into body parts.

See the person with it's legs sticking up?

Here's a half a person. Actually a replica of school girl.

Here's the finished product. It's supposed to be Urban Girl and Superman on a Kayak trip. Can you guess what she got for her birthday?

One of the oars got a bit flimsy, but I think it still turned out pretty cute for our first time. Also Superman is in the back and his legs were supposed to be dangling in the water. Unfortunately when School Girl went to get him out of the fridge one of his feet was missing and No ONE seems to know where it ran off to....

Anyhow. School Girl was in charge of the humans and I was in charge of the boat. Yup, she's waaaayyyyy more creative than me and I'm super good with that!

Here are two of my favorite birthday people. Superman's is in 2 days, so we went ahead and gave him his gifts tonight. We'll be traveling on his b-day.

Surprised about her Kayaking Adventure. All she thought she was getting was a steam iron and organic personal care items. (ALL of which she wanted and needed I might add.)

I think she's going to enjoy 17. So much is happening this coming year and so much to look forward to.

For I know the plans I have for you saith the Lord.... Jeremiah 29:11
