Brinley is 13...Teenager in the house!

Yeah, so that happened...and now I feel old. Luckily, she's been a great teenager thus far but it's only been about 2 months. :)
Let's see...things that Brinley has been up to within this last year...I might repeat things from last year because she doesn't change too much. :)
-She is a smart girl...she does really well in school if she applies herself. She says school is easy so she doesn't need to try. :) I think 7th Grade was a little harder for her...mostly just turning in her assignments on-time. Hopefully, 8th Grade will push her more.
-Brinley wants to be an adult. She always wants to stay up late and talk to Shawn and I. She stays up WAY TOO late just to prove she can.
-She LOVES movies! Just like her dad. She is way into Marvel movies (not like her dad) and Star Wars. What teenager isn't right now?
-She LOVES BYU football! Just like her dad.
-She really likes YW's (what Beehive doesn't?).
-Brinley still likes soccer and likes to play goalie the most.
-She BEGS for voice lessons but I think the school choir is good enough for now. She made it into an audition-only all girls choir for school next year.
-She is getting really good at piano and has played some pretty hard pieces. She doesn't play them perfect but isn't afraid of the challenge.
-She definitely isn't a girly-girl. She wears some mascara (sometimes), just brushes her hair, doesn't care about shaving (she doesn't have much hair on her legs...lucky!), and pretty much wears t-shirts and jeans everyday.
-She is way into music. She likes all different kinds, except country. The radio has to be going all the time in the car and she can often be found wearing ear buds.
-Brinley has found a love for family history. Her grandma taught her how to do it and she has loved going to the temple to do baptisms for the dead. Sometimes by herself.

It's crazy that I have such a grown-up kid but I love it! She is a good one to start off with. She is such a good girl!

She insisted on some bloopers for her "wallpaper" on her phone (that she can only use internet and text on...yeah we are mean parents).
