She has been so excited to turn eight, and she is learning that there are even more perks to being eight.
Sunday, one of her activity day leaders came and asked if they could come to our home and meet with us, introduce her to the leaders and the program. The appointed date and time was set, and all I heard for the next two days was, “When will it be Tuesday at 4?”
She was very excited. I don’t think she stopped smiling while they talked with her.
They told her about her first activity (which was today) and the excitement grew. That was all she talked about last night at dinner.
After dinner, all she wanted to do was finish her homework so she cold work on her bag and practice her Articles of Faith. She couldn’t go to sleep without the bag being finished. But she went to bed easily, because she wanted today to get here so she could go to the activity.
It was all she talked about this morning too. She blessed the breakfast, and every single sentence before she finally blessed the food at the very end of her prayer, had to do with “Activity Days”.
She came home, running in the door, too excited to make her way to the activity with her friends.
After I picked her up, that was all I heard about.
Eight certainly has it’s perks!
