Happy 13th Birthday, Lauren!

This post is dedicated to Lauren Grace Herdklotz!! Her name is a combination of Jeff's name and my name. Loren is Jeff's middle name and Grace is my middle name. I just love that she will always have a part of us both where ever she goes.

The Lord has really blessed Lauren with two great talents. #1. Lauren can sing! I love hearing her sing, and believe me she sings ALL the time!! #2. She understands her father!! Lauren has actually explained Jeff to me on numerous occasions. Jeff loves to work with her in the kitchen, because she thinks like him. She knows what to do, before he asks her to do it! It is neat for me to see them together.

Lauren can make a friend faster than anyone I know. Family campers from all over come and ask for her!! One mother came to camp this year and was very disappointed that Lauren had grown up so much. The age difference between her daughter and Lauren was very evident, and for the first time in years, they didn't spend any time together. Lauren has now made many friends among the summer staff and the road team members. She has really blossomed this year.

Lauren used to be the child that hated to read. Not anymore!! Now reading is her favorite hobby!

When Lauren grows up she wants to either deliver babies or be a writer.

She is very artistic. Singing, writing and drawing are the things she does best.

She does very well at English and math, even though she doesn't like either subject.

Celtic Women is Lauren's favorite music to listen to.

She LOVES to watch movies.

Happy Birthday, Lauren!! I hope that you have a very special day!!
