'tis the season for every kid in the Ayers family to have a birthday. We have some pretty significant ones this year too. Ally turned 16 earlier this month!
She got her license the very next day and has done very well driving the Jeep (which is also a standard). Although we were a bit concerned at first, we have decided this is an excellent skill for her to master. And actually, driving a standard requires constant focus, which is also a very beneficial thing. You have to pay attention, and you can't get lazy in your driving.
Gracie has her birthday coming up very quickly on the 5th of January - turning another monumental 13 years old. Now, we have TWO teenagers.
And of course, last but not least, December 30th, the youngest member of the family, Daniel turns 11.
