Today is Emily's 20th birthday!
Emily is our 5th grandchild and 2nd granddaughter!
She's a very important part of this very large family
and a very, very important part of this wonderful family.
I wrote about Emily on her birthday last year in this post and visiting there will show the links to all her previous posts.
And those links will take you to many pictures and stories of how she's changed over the years.
So I'll just post a few pictures here

and talk a little about what's been going on in her life during the past year.
First of all, after a summer off from school but still working at Olive Garden, Emily enrolled at Grand Valley State University near Grand Rapids to pursue a degree in Geology.   Although she feels she will always be interested in Geology she realized that it was not what she envisioned for a life career.  That, coupled with the fact that she missed South Bend resulted in the decision to move back.
Indiana University South Bend offers an excellent course in Marketing/Business which she was interested in pursuing and a much less expensive educational option.  
She shares a small townhouse near campus with her roommate, Brooke, and loves taking care of herself - shopping, cleaning, etc.
She's doing well at IUSB, loves her new lifestyle, and dates Chandler.
So now Emily is starting to look at internships in Marketing and hopes to work for the South Bend Cubs next summer.  
Emily's busy, motivated, and smart.  She's loving, sweet, and thoughtful and no one could ask for more in a granddaughter.  We're hoping she had the best birthday EVER and that the coming year is even better!  Happy Birthday, Emily!  We love you!
