She's Seven!

Sweet, Sweet Baby Girl,

Now you are seven!  Oh how the time flies!

I cannot tell you how much I love that you still let me dress you in smocked dresses every now and then!

At this point in life your favorite things are swimming, gymnastics, purple, roller-coaster rides, crafts, ice cream, your dolls, and your books.

You really, really love to read, and are such a good reader that you devour books much harder than your grade level.  We have tons of books in our house and you've read many of them three times!  You've written some stories, too, and not just stories that you read to your Daddy and me and we think, "So cute for a little girl" but stories that are really good and entertaining!

You want to grow up to be a writer, a mom, and a kindergarten teacher.  I'm certain you can do all three of those things if you want to!  I love listening in when you have school with your little brother and sister.  You are so good with them and are already a teacher, having taught them so many things!

This past year the little sister you prayed so long for, finally came home to share your room.  You have been an amazing big sister to her and helped so much with her adjustment into our family and American life.  Your unconditional, selfless love for her has been an inspiration to me!  The two of you are the best of friends and I pray that is still true many years from now!

You are beautiful and precious and a blessing.  I cannot wait to see what God has planned for your life!

(your biggest fan)
