My Baby is 18!

Emily is 18 today! She's my youngest and I can't believe she's 18 already. The last 18 years have gone so quickly. There's a special treat for you at the end of the post.

Emily used to love dressing up in 'princess' dresses.

Emily has grown into a beautiful, intelligent, young woman. She's doing her A levels in Biology, Chemistry and Philosophy and Ethics and she's hoping to go to Cardiff University in September to study Biochemical Sciences.

Emily's first day at secondary school when she was 11.

She has been playing the piano since she was at primary school and at the moment she's working towards her Grade 5 exam which she's sitting soon. She also loves walking, running and working out.

She's also a keen scout. She started in Guides (that's the girls equivalent to scouts here in the UK although girls can join Scouts too now - it used to be for boys only) when she was around 5 years old and transferred to Scouts as a teenager. The highlight of her scouting career is probably her Explorer Belt expedition to the Czech Republic two years ago. For that trip they were divided into groups of four and they did a 10 day round trip in the Czech Republic without any proper adult supervision. They had to get from camp to camp, plan their days and manage their money and food etc. They had a great time!
