Happy Hanukkah and Happy Birthday to my Tween-ager Turning Eleven!

A Note From Your Publisher

By Jess Searcy December 17, 2019

Holy cow! I just realized that I am going to have an official tween-ager in the house. I always wondered at what age a kid officially becomes a tween, and I'm still not sure really. But, I'm pretty sure turning eleven is definitely in the tween realm. Only two more years until I have a bonafide TEENAGER?! WHAT!!!!??? I'm having heart palpitations. So proud of my guy and the young man he is becoming! Happy Birthday, Evan!

And a Very Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating this week!

Evan is above my shoulders now. How long before he is taller than me?
