Emma at eight-and-a-half

Emma is officially eight-and-a-half!  I seriously wish time would tick by a lot slower with this one.  She is quickly turning into such a wonderful little lady!  She is incredibly easy going, constantly keeps busy and is so much fun to be around.  She now weighs 80 pounds and stands 4 '5" tall.  She wears size 10-12 clothes and size 3 shoes. 


She enjoys playing Barbies, school with her dolls, riding her bike, playing board/card games, writing stories and reading.  She is very independent, considerate, clever, creative and is the best big sister! 


This was her final season for 8U coach pitch softball.  She played on the Yellow Jackets and enjoyed every minute!  Several practices and games were cancelled with so much rain this season.  One Saturday she was able to play in four games!  This season she played mostly pitcher and third base.

 

She represented her homeroom class in the annual spelling bee again this year and placed fifth.  She was required to spell lots of challenging words and we practiced more than she wanted :)  I was so impressed and thought she did a great job! 

 
She has a very busy summer ahead filled with an assortment of activities and camps!  She participated in UYP {University for Young People} at Baylor last week.  The kids created their own city which they named 'City of Paradise'.  Emma worked very hard on her campaign {with Lita' help, of course!} and was voted as co-mayor. 

     
Promise me you'll always remember...
You're braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
smarter than you think
and loved more than you know.
