8 year old turns 9
May 14, 2012
Today our third oldest girl turned 9.
I can hardly believe it.
Today she was unwell and had the day off school. It wasn’t all bad though. She got a chance to ride her new bike…. (thanks Granni Jan and Fafa) and have a couple of friends over for dinner.
She constantly surprises us with her determination and order, her conviction and openness.
It’s tricky being ‘in the middle’ of our quite overwhelming family….. but she does it with so much class.
This past year she has applied her trademark gusto to all things music. It’s a thrill to watch her learn.
She was keen for me to share this video with you….. the 2cellos play Smooth Criminal….. she loves these guys so much she wanted their album for her birthday. We have enjoyed it all day. Tim even thanked her for her great taste in music!
We thank God for her. She’s a treat and a pleasure to have in our family.
