Emmy got her first pair of roller skates this last week! We found a pair of clearance skates at Toys R Us, and of course, they were covered in glitter and Elsa and Anna. They are the kind that clip onto your tennis shoes, and she couldn’t wait to try them on. Even though it’s been FREEZING out, she braved the temps and off she went with her daddy down the sidewalk (can you say best dad ever?? He’s so sweet and I love the pictures of him helping her skate).
She’s growing up so fast, this girl of mine. Can hardly believe she is five already, reading sight words, and beginning to do more like help me in the kitchen, work on her schoolwork independently, and doing her chores. I feel like five years have gone by in a flash, and she only gets sweeter by the day. A dad at AWANA the other day told me that his daughter was new to the group, and that Emmy sweetly went and made friends with her and made her feel welcome. That’s totally the kind of girl she is. I’m so proud of her.
