Yesterday, Anna's actual birthday, was a crazy day. Nathan and Luke had rugby practice, Caleb and Jonathan had 2 rugby games down south, and Anna was invited to the birthday party of another girl in her co-op class at the same time as Caleb and Jonathan's games! Bob was in PA with his sister Ann celebrating their dad's 90th birthday, so Anna had to ride with a friend to and from the party. She had a wonderful time, and hey--a party I didn't have to plan!
Funny note: in the picture above, facebook wanted to tag her as me! Ha!
ETA: There's actually even less left now that I left it out on the table for a little while unattended . . . it might not see tomorrow at all!
So wow, 9 years old! Anna is becoming a beautiful young woman with a lovely smile! Like I said before, she loves doing hair, and fortunately there are several willing helpers to be practiced upon right here. She also loves gymnastics and swimming. She's a good reader, but she would rather be flipping or being a contortionist than actually sitting down and reading a lot. She's good at math too, but again, that definitely doesn't light her fire. She has really developed into a good helper, taking pride in keeping whichever room is her assigned room for the day clean and picked up. And it goes without saying that she loves babies and is a wonderful big sister especially for Drew and Verity! I think she will be in great demand as a babysitter in a few more years--she certainly has oodles of experience! We look forward to seeing what this year holds for Anna!
