Someone turned 6 years old 3 days ago and lived to tell about it.
She requested chocolate, roller skates, waffles & spaghetti.
We started out with a waffle breakfast, complete with a first time ever sugary Mini Monkey Bread. Well the waffle maker broke (thank God for the warranty), so we improvised with very thick pancakes.
Then we drew her attention to a present waiting for her on her bed. The much anticipated roller skates. She continued on throughout the day on a scavenger hunt complete with clues to find “6” presents: a jewelry making kit, Romona the Pest” series (thank you Nana), a night time shopping trip with Mom to pick out new shoes (pictured below), money from her brother out of his “give” jar, and a “coffee date with daddy by way of adventurous scooter ride” , (and skates).
Lunch was spaghetti and first ever corn on the cob ( which also flopped) and cupcake decorating (and eating).
Dinner we went out, her choice, to our fav restaraunt.
She seemed to love all this, tomorrow is her Coffee Date, it has been a huge countdown.
We are so impressed with her zest for life and tenacious spirit.
She is determined to learn to skate this next week before school starts so that she can take them to the school rink.
She has initiated her practice sessions each day and is getting so good.
We love her feisty-ness and her desire to give and serve.
She is a great helper, organizer, and initiator.
We have seen God’s spirit growing more inside her through her prayers and conviction.
She is just the perfect little 6 year old for our family!
