Oh, The Places She Will Go!

My daughter Katie turned 16 years old today. It is one of those milestones in ones life that bring about change, possibilities, choices, and opportunities.

She is smart, funny, beautiful, compassionate, love of thrill and adventure like her dad, and she will do whatever she wants in the world as she gets closer to her opportunity to set out creating a better world. Since she was around 7, she has wanted to be a veterinarian, and what a great veterinarian would be with her amazing love of all animals and living beings.

Happy Birthday Katie, I love you to the moon and back!


Oh, The Places You'll She Will Go! - Dr Seuss

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
Any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And
you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy young woman who’ll
decide where to go.

You’ll get mixed up,
of course, as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up with
many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great
tact and remember that
Life’s A Great Balancing Act.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)

I can’t believe how incredibly fast children grow up and how amazing it is to witness them grow and develop on their journey through life.
