A wonderful thing happened during our holidays.
As usual, I had my camera with me at all times, and ended up taking hundreds of pictures.
And the ones that I am most thrilled with?
Are of Middlest.
You see, she seldom lets me take pictures of her.
She is often a ham in front of the camera, and doesn't usually like to show off her silver smile.
But on this particular day, she obliged me.
She will be starting junior high this coming September, and...
I can see it.
The little girl she used to be... vanished this past summer.
It happened so quickly.
When I wasn't looking.
And now I see very clearly that who is standing before me
is a beautiful young woman.
With her very own,
Mona Lisa smile.
This post will be linking up with Darcy at My3boybarians for Sweet Shot Tuesday.
