To my sweet Skeeter,
Seven is a big milestone. You’re in first grade. Reading chapter books, learning to ride a skateboard, and writing stories are your latest accomplishments.
I love your energy and enthusiasm. I know sometimes it seems like I am almost always reminding you to use your quiet voice. We are a house divided with personalities. You and I are the extroverts, and your daddy and older sister are the introverts. We all adore you. We simply cannot keep up with your energy. When I am semi well rested, I can. Learning how to navigate different personalities will help you later in life.
Thank you for reminding me to stop and smell the roses. Keep telling me all your stories and your jokes. I love to listen to your stories. I adore that you create plays and shows. Keep learning. I love how self aware you are with your schoolwork. You marked lower in your self assessment because you knew that you could do better. Your creativity continues to amaze me. I love you, my seeet girl.
P.S. I know your birthday was just over 9 weeks ago. Forgive me for the delay.
