Growing, learning, and maturing? Yes. Still just as sweet and innocent and playful? For sure.
This girl is going places - her heart is big, her imagination is strong, and her personality is contagious!
I sat down with the birthday girl and asked her a few questions...
What do you think you'll like best about being six?
Six means I have to use both hands now to show how old I am!
What is one thing you really want to do before you turn seven?
Become a good reader and learn to roller blade.
Well, I lost a tooth just two days after I turned six, so maybe I'll lose about eight more still.
What is your favorite thing about first grade?
Going to co-op, being with my friends, fun field trips... you know, the usual school stuff.
Hhmmm. That's a hard question because I like to do anything if my friends are there. We usually like to play family and pretend.
What is a special lesson you've learned about God, his world, or his truth?
That God loves me and will never ever stop loving me.
That you will "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." 2 Peter 3:18
That you will always choose to be "kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you." Ephesians 4:32
And that as you know, love, and serve God more, you will proclaim: "The Lord has done great things for [me] and [ am] filled with JOY!"
