Oh, my beautiful, smart, happy, friendly little girl! This was a big year for her: she learned to ride a bike, lost four teeth, became a proficient reader, learned how hard work led to success in her math timed tests, made many new friends, grew so tall so quickly that all of her pants became high-waters, and continued to bring joy and light to all of us who are lucky enough to know her. She is exceptional.
And now--blissful summer awaits! We're looking forward to popsicles, swimming pools, playing with friends all day long, and cramming in all of the fun we possibly can fit into the next 2 1/2 months!
