Yes our 7 year old turned 8 yesterday…… but we were too busy visiting friends and celebrating that I haven’t been able to post it until now.
On Tuesday we took her out of school for a day in the city shopping and hanging out with me.
What do you think of all her charm bracelets?
They are not all for her.
We spent the majority of the day finding 3 matching charm bracelets, suitable charms and putting them together for 2 very special friends of hers, and herself. One of the precious things about this girl is …. even though she could shop like the world is ending if given a limitless budget…. more often than not the purchases were for someone else. Sure she go lots of treats, but she also came home with presents for all 3 sisters, 2 friends and an adult friend….she even encouraged me to buy somethings for myself.
I hope her love for learning leads to a large enough income to keep her and her friends in the manner they are becoming accustomed!
After the traditional ‘open the presents on the parent’s bed’ we headed off to Maitland to visit dear friends, have our eyes tested and play.
Thank you God for this wonderful little/big girl.
We are so blessed to have her in our family.
