Well this girl of mine is the perfect reason to blow the dust off of this place.. I feel the need to put something here. 8! Eight years old today. She is such a joy. An old soul who loves to cook already. I intend on handing over the reigns to her in that area by the time she's 10. I'm kidding. Sort of. She breezes through novels moments after picking them up. She wants to try something new everyday, and while she may not complete every project she takes on I'm thankful that she is a strong starter.. I keep telling myself these are the years she will remember. That sort of freaks me out, and it makes me thankful she is my oldest. She is teaching me to be a better mom.. I'm thankful to be hers.
