I have a 7 year old...

I can't believe that my oldest is 7 years old. I know I am probably going to say something to that affect every year but oh well that is the way I feel. She began her day opening all the birthday cards she got in the mail. Then to school she went. We went to school during GG's lunchtime and brought her subway, her choice. I went to get her and we ate in my mom-in-law's office. It was nice. There were 4 kids in her class celebrating their birthday today, yeah it must of been a popular day to give birth 7 years ago! I know that there is another girl in the same grade that also has today as her birthday, she just wasn't in GG's class this year. I'm thinking of asking the office staff to put all those birthdays in one class and GG in another! Just kidding :) She actually does really well sharing her special day with all those other kids.

This afternoon our friends came over for a playdate and they brought dinner, which was awesome. Red was super excited about it and didn't take a very good nap. He keeps telling us over and over and over again that he is going to marry this little girl. Which in all honesty is fine with me. She is really cute and I like her parents. :) But he is only 2 years old so he has awhile until he gets married! GG was excited when she got home to see her friends from church here.

I forgot to mention that a lady down the street has a daughter who goes to the same school as our kids. They don't have a bus system for the school because people drive anywhere between 5 minute to an hour to get to school. We travel 5 minutes! Anyways, I got it worked out with her to pick up the girl on the days J works so I don't have to pack up the three kids to get her from school. It has worked out wonderfully because her daughter is in 4th grade and she meets GG at her locker and then they walk to her mom's car together. I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier, the girls played all summer together.

And lastly if you got this far it is national de-lurking week so leave a comment if nothing else tell my little girl happy birthday!

Happy Birthday GG!! Isn't it amazing how some years strike you as a lot older than others? I am having a hard time picturing my eldest being 9 in just a few weeks....

I mean, NINE? I have been a parent for almost a DECADE???
