    • Hee, hee – using your iPad with auto-correct to make that comment by any chance? Wondering if you meant “congrats” instead of “contests”? 😉

  5. Wow! Amazing how quickly that happened. I remember when I heard she was born. Doesn’t seem like it was 16 years ago.

  6. She looks so pretty… and HAPPY! 🙂 Happy Birthday, Meghan!
    Oh, please explain the class ring thing to me? (No class rings in Germany), I thought they got the class rings when they graduate??

    • I’m not sure what the custom is everywhere with class rings, but around here kids seem to get them sophomore or junior year of high school. I think they started doing that so that kids could enjoy wearing them a bit longer. I got mine when I was a junior. I think my mom told me she got hers right before graduation. Class rings can be designed virtually any way a student would like them; there are many, many designs to choose from. Meghan chose a pretty traditional type with her school color for the stone color, the high school name around the stone, her graduation year and the school emblem on one side, and on the other side she chose a ballet shoe design and the word “dancer.” They can choose just about any activity or symbol that means something to them. If you are really interested, have a look at the website of the company her high school used: Josten’s

      • I think around here they get their class rings early, too. Not sure when, though. I guess we will find out when Melissa brings home the order information. She’s said recently that she doesn’t want a class ring because “they’re ugly”… I’m sure she’ll change her mind, though LOL
        So, since they get them before senior year, what happens if they flunk and don’t graduate?
        Meghan’s ring sounds pretty. I think it’s great that they can personalize them.

      • Oh, I’m sure she’ll change her mind too! There are many styles that look nothing like a traditional class ring.

    • LOL, Gerry. Jiffy Lube is one of the better inventions of the 20th century in my opinion!

  9. She’s beautiful!!! Congrats on the learner’s permit! I guess that is to her, since your worries probably just increased 10 fold.

    • Thanks Amy. Yeah, I’d say my worries just keep increasing; in addition to the learner’s permit, we have the boyfriend, boyfriend has driver’s license, boyfriend is a senior so we have the prom to deal with… ay, yi, yi!

  10. What a gleaming look in her eye! Happy Birthday, Meghan…and blessings to you, Mom.

    • Thank you for the blessings – I will need blessings to have the strength to be patient and trusting, more than usual, over the next few months!
