Chicklet Turns 11

This picture tells it all. She's growing up! No longer a little girl, but not yet a young woman.

A little girl in a growing-up body. Bittersweet.

I hate to see the little girl disappearing; she has been so precious to know.

But the emerging young girl is equally delightful. So interested in so many things! She wants to try it all--crocheting, knitting, beading, cooking, baking, sewing, painting, drawing...all arts and crafts. She's started organizing and rearranging her own room. She continues to take dance and be in theater productions and wishes she could do soccer too. She loves to ride her bike and roller blade. She still plays with Barbies, 18" dolls and Littlest Pet Shop, but she's outgrown Polly Pockets, she says. She enjoys reading, and she's started a writing notebook for her own stories. She writes down prayers and has such a sweet, earnest faith. She loves babies and helping in the nursery at church. She's going to be a mother's helper in exchange for piano lessons and she can't wait for that to start next week!

You are such a blessing, Chicklet11.

May God make His face to shine upon you always!
