Alivia at 14 1/2

When Alivia was a baby, I started this tradition of celebrating 1/2 birthdays. Here we are, 14 years later, still celebrating the half birthday. We give the kids a little present and they go on a Daddy date to lunch or dinner. It is good for them to have something to look forward to mid year I guess. For now, we will keep up the tradition. I believe I will keep it up until they graduate, then they will graduate from the Half Birthday. :)

Alivia selected lunch with Chris at Panera, where she gets broccoli and cheddar soup and a baguette. Yum.
Alivia is very active. She is now done with cross country and considering running track. Their team is highly competitive, so she does not want to sit the season watching others run. So we will see what she decides. On winter break, we hope she will take her learners permit test so she can soon be driving to school!! She recently lettered in cross country and was awarded first in her age group for the Lincoln Halfsy with a half marathon time of 140:10.

This is what she is thinking as she turns 14.5.
