we are in west virginia visiting family and this is what a nine year old Lily looks like

the last time we swam in this pond surrounded by the purple irises she was much smaller

seeing her get older and bigger so fast pulls on my mama heart strings like no other

happy monday and happy july friends!!

today she will start baking camp for the week

last week however, she enjoyed the first week out of school without routines by waking up after 9am every morning

on this particular morning she actually woke up at 11am

happy monday friends!

Lily

as third grade slowly comes to an end, this is how i will remember her

confident, strong, more independent, creative, funny, smart, positive, kind…. all with a small side of attitude and crimped hair from the previous night’s braids

i can honestly say that i will wholeheartedly miss third grade

happy monday friends!
