Happy 8th Birthday, Nora!

I’m so very glad year seven is over. I’ve come to the conclusion that the seventh year is a year of transition. They are figuring out who they are and where they fit in the family. It is a trying year, in my opinion. Over the last few weeks I’ve noticed a subtle change in Nora, for the better. She’s a little more confident, a little less dramatic and slightly more mature. She still loves dress-up and imaginative play and, of course, Frozen.


Card readingThis year she was able to read her own cards easily and was actually interested in what they said.

Frozen tiara Frozen tiara! She also got Frozen dresses and accessories and books. She loves books!

Help with the handwritingGrandma helped with the handwriting at the bottom of the card.

Silly brotherWhat imaginative play is complete without Olaf?

Make a wish
Nora took a moment to make a wish before she blew out her candle.

She is in second grade this year and already loves her teacher. Although there is still the drama that is Nora and the anger issues, I can already glimpse the young woman she will one day become. I’m so thankful to be her mama, even though she drives me crazy sometimes, because she teaches me to be better every day.
