For now, our birthdays are split between the boys and the girls. The boys come first in the line up - Joshua, Jeremiah, Claude. And come September and October we're on a girl birthday run - Abby, Hannah, Rachel. So, the pink and purple napkins I bought have been put to good use in the last couple of weeks!
Abby got a booster seat for her birthday day, which meant that the kids got a new seating arrangement in the van. Rachel graduated from the infant car seat, Jeremiah gets to sit between his big sisters, and Abigail gets a window seat for the first time in almost 3 years.
Strong personality, stronger will, and goofier than the rest of her siblings put together, Abigail is one dynamic little package! She is great at rounding up her younger brother and sister, calming them down when they are upset, and enjoys getting them involved in all kinds of fun games. I've always said that she is the life of the party around here. That, certainly, has not changed!
Happy 4th Birthday, Abby Joy! We love you!
Hannah Girl. It's hard to believe that she's already six years old! She, like most of her siblings, has a will as tough as nails. But her personality is soft - gracious. She takes her time getting her jobs done, including schoolwork, but often goes above and beyond. Hannah likes a good story and if she doesn't have her nose in a book, she's asking Claude and I to tell her about when we were young.
Happy 6th Birthday, Hannah Girl! We're so happy to have you in the Crew!
