Happy Birthday Julia Charlotte!

Happy birthday to our smart, calm, thoughtful, beautiful Julia! Eight years old already!

Amazingly, today is Julia’s eighth birthday. It’s been a wonderful day, and a wonderful eight years. Julia is a smart, talented, funny, calm, sensitive, and beautiful girl – a devoted sister and an excellent daughter. Among her many eight-year-old charms:

  • She can do her own hair – but lets her mama do it for her, too.
  • She hasn’t missed a spelling word in two years of quizzes.
  • She is the only one in the family who can consistently comfort Genevieve.
  • She is very particular about her clothes.
  • She does math for fun – but not for too long.
  • She can recount the plots, subplots, and sub-sub-plots of all the Little House on the Prairie books – and of quite a few other books.
  • She loves to make illustrated books.
  • She can keep track of an amazing number of details about other people.
  • She loves wordplay, and is quick to pick up new puns and jokes.
  • She is amazingly attuned to other people’s feelings.

I sure love her! I can’t wait to see what the next year brings!
