A Visit with Taylor

Our 14 year old niece, Taylor (daughter to Cliff and Lori), is currently on a "Teen Tour" of the Western U.S. We were thrilled that she was able to spend a few hours with us when her tour stopped in Vegas for a few days! Taylor is a charming young lady and we immensely enjoyed our time with her. She and Ella hit it off (of course) and Ella had a major meltdown when she had to say good-bye. We took Taylor to Sarah's favorite spot, the Bellagio, first. Then Ella and I were dropped off for bedtime while Taylor and Uncle Mitch headed back to check out the Venetian.

Taylor is a very talented LEFTY softball pitcher heading in to her sophomore year of high school so I was surprised to find out she would not be playing softball this summer. When I asked her about it she gave me a very mature response -- she said she wasn't about to turn down her parents offer to tour the U.S. this summer because she didn't know if she'd ever have the opportunity to do it again. She has her sight set on a particular college and is working hard to get in. If softball fits in, fine, but if not, she's OK with that. Not many teenagers have their heads on that straight! Nice job, Cliff & Lori!
