Self Portrait, Age 9
A whole decade! You've been with us 10 years now and I can't imagine life without you. You are creative and artistic and fun.
You have a wonderful laugh.

You love words and writing and stories. I love getting to be your teacher and experience books with you. You're so insightful. I've always thought it was sad that you can't ever read a book for the first time again but reading and talking to you about books, especially ones I've loved, is pretty close to that experience. All your teachers (sunday school, art, AHG, etc) describe you as "Such a joy to have in class" and I agree!
You love your family (animal family included). You are a wonderful sister and a daughter.
You're great at pretty much everything you put your mind to - from spotting nature finds on hikes to baking (your solo baking skills are something the whole family is enjoying!) to writing poems and stories (you're finishing up a three volume novel on a dog named Trixie).You're starting to branch out and try things on your own and its such a fun thing to watch you soar. I'm really excited about all the new experiences we'll get to share this upcoming year.
