I'm over a week late in writing this, but Ellie is now seven. Her birthday and the last day of VBS had the misfortune of falling on the same day which made for a very busy long day for me and not as much time celebrating our birthday girl as I would have liked. We made up for it by celebrating her birthday that afternoon, the following day and a week later when she finally had her Lego/pool birthday party.
She was thrilled with her girly Lego housethat her Uncle Mark had sent up for her. She and Madeline got to work building it the very next day.
She later discovered that she really likes the Zita the Spacegirlbook that we gave her. She's been reading it ever since. I think she likes that it's a graphic novel. She was excited when I told her there's a new Zita bookcoming out soon. Maybe she'll find it in her stocking on Christmas morning.
Pictures of her Lego/pool party will be coming soon, I hope! Life has been moving so fast these days that sometimes weeks get away from me before I can blog the things I want to share.
