Logan Enters the Doughnut Hole

This week Logan turned 12, an age he feels is quite momentous. He feels excited and a bit anxious about stepping into his teenaged years. It's prompting a bit of self-reflection and a desire to step up to the plate. I think Logan is feeling ready to put childish things behind him and become a more mature young man.

I remember living in the adolescent doughtnut hole of life--not an adult, certainly not a child, and it all seemed bogglingly complicated. But it's also such an exciting time. Mark and I are loving watching Roscoe and Logan grow into fuller, more mature, more interesting versions of themselves.

Logan enters his teenaged years well-equipped with a healthy body, a strong mind, a bright spirit, and a childhood full of love and limits. We love you, Logan. We're here to guide you and cheer you on through these middle years. We can't wait to see all the places you'll go.


  1. Oh, Ang. You're so clever!

    And Happy Birthday, Logan! 12 is a big deal!

  2. Looks like the birthday buds have fun all around. We'll have to get our two together soon so they can discuss all their manhood/teenagerhood plans:)

  3. Angela, love your blog. I lurk. You are one of the most amazing women I know of. --Kimberly Higginson
