Here it is, October 18th...and Thalia is 17 years old today!
She'll probably want to strangle me for saying this, but I think she looks just the same, just a little older! She was an absolutely adorable little "rug rat", as her dad called her, and she's an absolutely beautiful high school senior!
I'm so proud of her for so many reasons.
She's spent her high school years in 3 different high schools.
and now back to California for her senior year.
I was talking to her a couple of weeks ago, and I was so impressed with her attitude!
She did a full year of IB in London and was telling me it wasn't counting anymore.
I was telling her how bad I felt.
"Oh, it's OK Mimi..." and she proceeded to tell me how it had prepared her better for her classes this year.
Everything was positive...
Most who had to move to a new school for their senior year would be singing the blues..
She left her boyfriend, JT, in London...
In Bangkok, I was in a bit of disagreement with her parents!
They let her JUMP from the 2nd FLOOR to the pool below!
Here she is as a little one,
loving her animals,
even banana slugs!
Happy 17th Birthday to you, Thalia!
I love you!
