This is how it all turned out. It was pretty busy. She wanted an "E" on top of it all. She also did all the cupcakes.
Here she is with her loot. She picked out a sparkly pink scripture bag, got some scripture markers and a small blue quad with her name on it. She was pretty excited to read them at first, but that has waned. At least she has them for the future, right?
I'm so glad she had such a good day. I can't believe that she is already 8. I'm pretty sure that makes me extremely old. She is becoming so mature. She is a great help around the house and with the little kids. She is usually so obedient when I ask her to do something. She has loved learning cursive this summer, but refuses to do anything else, like say, math. She still loves art and says she wants to be an art teacher when she grows up. She has art stations all over the house: a desk in her room, a table in her room, a table in the play room, the kitchen table, the kitchen counter, the basement table. She loves drawing, coloring, painting, cutting, putting recycling together to make things... pretty much making lots of good messes. But she loves it. She has also really loved reading this summer. She is working her way through all the Magic Tree House books right now and loves any Rainbow Fairy books or Tiara Club books that she can get a hold of that she hasn't read yet. If I try to get her to branch out and read something else, she refuses. I think she wants to finish every book in the series before she moves on. She also loves riding her bike and scooter. Her favorite TV show right now is Good Luck Charlie, which is one that I think is hilarious too so I don't mind. She is really excited about third grade this year and I hope she has a good teacher and good friends. I love this girl! Happy Birthday!
