And Now We are Eight.

Honey comes to town each year for Emma's birthday. It is a beloved tradition, enhanced this year by the sojourn to the American Girl Store for shopping and lunch! Emma got Elizabeth from Honey and Buzzy for her birthday and Samantha got a much needed hair-do.
I love Emma's happiness as seen in these pictures.
I just can't believe how big she is. How old she is. How lanky, slender and tall she is. Bill and I have about 10 heart attacks a week just looking at her. How did this happen?

Sunday was her birthday, and most of the day was centered around her first performance for the Dance Company. She may not be the most "precisional instrument of speed and aromatics" but one thing is for certain. She LOVES being on stage.
That's a good thing, right?
Not that either Bill nor I get that.
Or Bo.
We're just too shy and retiring.
No imitations, movie quotes and showtunes for us, no way.
Welcome to your eight year, Emkins.
We think you are just great. <3

You are beautiful Emma girl! Don't grow up too fast or you won't want to go on the Merry-go-round anymore. (sniff)
