December 10, 2010: Ian Turns His Back on the Teen Years

My first baby turned 20 today. No longer a teenager. Off in Argentina. Serving the Lord.

I think what was most surprising to me was how old I feel. I'm old enough to have a 20-year-old son? It's those moments like when they first go to school, when they graduate, when they get a mission call, that make me realize how fast time is going.

Ian's mission is almost halfway over. Before we know it, he will be back and heading off to college. In a few more years, he may be getting married and then starting a family of his own. We won't even mention the word "grandma" although I'll be a fabulous one!

Happy 20th Ian!
