Ever since she was a little girl, Elizabeth has dreamed of flying.She used to talk about making wings for herself so she could soar like the birds. At times she wished she could just grow invisible wings to use whenever she pleased. It was quite entertaining to watch her little mind work as she pondered the possibilities.Now that she's a little more grown up, her dreams have become a little more realistic. Elizabeth's latest dream is to get an ultralight aircraft. She figures it's more likely she'll fly with that machine than with the wings she has yet to grow. So now I am entertained by listening her talk with Brian about an ultralight. Imagine, my little girl flying! Er, maybe I don't need to imagine it anymore.Elizabeth turned 16 on April 11, took and passed her road test on the 21st, and we went to the Secretary of State's office to get her driver's license on the 26th. Now my baby girl is out driving the van all by herself. She's driven a friend home, gone to the store to get things she needed, and picked her brother up from track practice. Among other adventures. I was scared by the idea of her driving alone at first, but now it's becoming - well - almost normal.And as I pondered the reality that my little girl isn't really so little anymore, as I noticed the time for her to leave the nest is drawing nearer, I realized something. She's sprouting wings.
