Family Goes On Forever; Only The Players Change

Our oldest daughter and her husband have a daughter who is as lovely as is her name, which is Sarah. Sarah teeters on the brink of change, having left Middle School and all that nonsense behind, and now is (1) a high schooler, a situation that emphasizes (2) the beginning of growing up, with all that is involved in that, both physically, mentally and emotionally. There is also the bodily changes that involve hormones, emotional rides high and low, all of which hits you while you are learning a new school, studying harder than ever before, thinking about dating and the many implications of that, and trying to decide what happens with the rest of your life, should you survive long enough to live it. Oh! And then, there is homework, lots of it because now, you are in high school and nobody coddles you there. Oh, God!
