This past week our girl turned 7!She is spunky, silly, messy, inquisitive, loves the outdoors and has the sweetest laugh. She likes to lead her friends and has no problem laughing at her mistakes. She is the first one to try something and the last one to do it because she doesn’t want it to end. She likes finding “friends” in the dirt and bringing them inside to show me. Riding her bike, with smudgy glasses and dirty hands and shoes is living her best life.Sarah and I used to have a deal were she was able to dress herself for school and I would dress her on the weekends. Well the weekends have been more and more about what she wants to wear and less about my choices. We call her outfits Sarah Style. She prefers flowy dresses, layers, jewelry (especially chokers) and big bows or headbands. It’s cute most of the time, but then are days that she looks like a hot mess. Recently she’s been telling me she wants to be a fashion designer one day so she can “dress herself all the time”. She even drew this outfit for me one day. Dream big my love!Sarah loves the idea of make up and can often be found fully covered in it. For example she recently went to a party where she did her own “make up”.She doesn’t love to sit down for homework, but does well in school. She has recently been reading chapter books and hearing her read is just so beautiful. Sarah has a lot of friends in class and is constantly asking to make play dates.
Sarah loves to draw and can often be found doodling.Sarah is our flower child. I’m convinced she was a hippie in her past life. She likes living in her owe pace, with her bug friends outside under the sun. Schedules and commitments are not her thing. She started numerous classes this year and then gave up after only a few weeks. She wants to be a free bird, which makes me worried for her teen years.
Sarah loves her brother, but only in small doses. She loves reading to him and playing with him, but when we tries to touch her figurines she’s over him.6 years old was hard, but I’m hopeful our bond will be even more stronger at age 7 and that she will always want to dress like twins.As our tradition goes we asked Sarah for a few of her favorite things. Here is what she said.
