As always, I get a little emotional seeing my sweet girl getting a year older. Recently, it seems she's grown up a lot. Nine years old for me was a wonderful year. I can remember having two best buddies in my 3rd grade class, loving my teacher and having a lot of fun with my family. Similarly, Emily has made wonderful friends and really enjoying herself with a teacher who has a fun, warm and inviting teaching style.She is on the cusp of learning about more of life ---- and I don't want this lovely time of innocence to end!!!
This year Emily asked for a small group of friends to get together and go ice skating. It was nice dealing with a small group. We kept it pretty simple and everyone had a great time.
