Time keeps marching on. It won’t stop as much as I really want it to.
It has taken me way too long to even sit down to view and edit these images, but I don’t even care anymore, because that means I am soaking in my time with my littles. I won’t get this time back, and it’s just moving along way too quickly.
To our 8 year old daughter –
I’m glad we captured your 8 year old you. Please don’t grow up too fast…
I love when you laugh so hard you can’t stop – you show your big space in-between your two front teeth that I (your momma) used to wear. You’re a part of me, and I adore it on you.
I love when you fill me in about school and then role play the teacher role perfectly to your two younger sisters.
I love that you pick an extremely large handful of chips for your dessert. You are such a salt lover, and you know what…? It leaves more chocolate for me. 😉
I love when you kiss and hug me as loooong as possible. I’m not sure if you are really enjoying saying goodnight or just trying to prolong bedtime.
I love how you don’t care about getting dirty. You are such a great helper with tasks around the house and with the animal chores. You do your task, and you do it well.
I love that you are a dreamer like your daddy. Keep dreaming about your big horse, girlie. How many pictures did you need to paint? And how many lemonade stands did you talk about doing?
I love how you help lead devotions every morning and show such a desire to pray and read your Bible. Keep growing in Him.
We are so thankful for you, and I love walking hand in hand through life with you.
