This is Meredith, my sister’s fifteen-year-old daughter. She was born at the beginning of my freshman year in college, and I can’t believe how much she’s changed and grown. She made the cheerleading squad this year, and that has been interesting for my sister because we both grew up at the opposite end of the social spectrum, the end that the cheerleaders made fun of. So you could say that Meredith is actively bringing the world together, one back hand spring at a time.
