Faith is 10!

IMG_3491 IMG_3400 IMG_3402 IMG_3405 IMG_3408 My baby girl turned ten-years-old today!  Yesterday she and I looked at a picture that I have of her in my room when she was only a few days old and was sooo tiny!  Now she is a ten year old, fourth grader that does flips non-stop!  Where did the time go?

Faith is such a good friend and sweet girl. She is kind to everyone (even her brothers, most of the time) and has a big heart.  I have loved getting to know her better over the past year. Homeschooling has it’s challenges, but she and I have definitely improved our relationship through our time together each day.  I love that she wants to spend time with me and cuddle up at night.  She may be getting bigger but she is still my little girl who loves her Mommy, and for that I am very thankful.   Faith used to be so shy (and still is a little), but she has been so brave and adaptable through all of the schooling changes that we have made over the past few years.  I am proud of the young lady that she is becoming.

Faith had her party a few weeks ago at the gym where she does gymnastics.  She had a great time with her friends and then had a few of them spend the night.  She was so excited to have her party.  She decorated the house all by herself and had a vision for how it was to be done.  She definitely has a knack for decorating and putting together outfits….she can do it better than I can!!

Here are some pictures of the birthday fun!!  I love you Faith!!
