Beginnings and Birthdays

Posted on June 2nd, by Amy in Celebrations, work in progress. 16 comments

The beginnings of my Wonderland quilt:

After a full day of celebrating Sophia’s birthday, I stayed up late sewing…Joe thinks I *might* have a problem!  It’s so soothing to me, sew, press, trim, repeat…more on that later.

Sophia turned 6!

She had a fun day being the center of attention and loved every moment of it!

Letting her sisters know that this pillow pet is all hers.

With the warm up in the weather, finally – she has proudly been riding a bike with no training wheels.

And today is her last day of kindergarten – hard to believe it’s come and gone so quickly!

Birthdays was plural up at the top…

Ella turned 11 the same weekend as Market.  We had a lunch party, and then she kept celebrating all day!

Ella and Emmalie have a half day tomorrow, and then they are done with 1st grade, and 5th grade.  Goodness, how did I get old enough to have a 6th grader!?  Time flies when you’re having fun – and I wouldn’t trade a moment of it for anything!

Blessings to you ~ Amy

    You have lovely daughters. Wait until your youngest graduates from college. I know I felt old that day, but of course a lot about age is attitude, so I try to think young.
