Sweet Sixteen part 1

When the school day was through, she was given an envelope. Inside, a little rhyme told her it was time to celebrate, and that she was going for a little ride.

I let her drive. She likes driving a lot! She loves driving her daddy's car!

She went from house to house following the clues. At each stop she received a gift, a rose and a special birthday greeting from friends who have meant a lot to her over the years we have lived in this area.
Jaden was her first crush.
A hug from her daddy!
Bethany, an awesome neighbor who we lived across the street from for 4 years.
Her friend and dance teacher, Laura.
Her big sis, Teagen.
Her best friend for years, Audrey, and family.Her young woman leader, Shelly, who has become a good friend.
Her past young woman leader, also named Shelly.
And last but not least, her main squeeze, Kevin.
After the scavenger hunt, back at home, she opened all the presents and got ready for her first real date....well, not exactly. Her parents would be coming along....
