Amanda is 15!

Amanda spent all day Christmas just waiting to get to the part of the day when we celebrate her birthday.  It's hard to believe she is 15 years old, in 10th grade, and getting so mature.  She had pumpkin pie for her birthday cake again and really, really likes the Galileo thermometer she got this year!  She is turning into quite the young adult now....  She built the puzzle ball in 2 days and wouldn't let anyone else help her at all!  The math calendar was something she really, really wanted - she got one last year and did the problem each and every day and wanted to keep going.  She's such an amazing kid!
