Happy 7th Birthday

Yes, it’s already come and gone.  Meg has turned 7.  Six was a great year.  Meg has really grown into something special.  She has the biggest heart I’ve ever seen.  Her love and compassion is absolutely amazing.  Meg would do anything for anyone. 

Don’t get me wrong, there are days that being her mother isn’t so easy.  We fight and argue about the little things.  The mornings are the worse!  Every morning, we do the same thing; our routine doesn’t change up very often.  Every morning, we have the same conversations about getting up, brushing hair and teeth and getting shoes on.  However, if this is my biggest complaint, I think we’re doing ok. 

There are times when she gets sassy with me, but she’s quick to apologize.  Of course, this is usually after she’s stomped her feet or rolled her eyes.  I write these things, not because I want her to sound like a brat, but because I want to remember the good and the bad times. 



Six was full of great times.  Meg became a cousin again in September and November.  We welcomed Jackson (September) and Parker (November) into the family.  Meg was so excited to have two more cousins. 


We got to go to game five of the World Series.  It was an amazing opportunity and we had an amazing time. 


Nawnaw and I took Megan to her first Rodeo  She didn’t much care for calf roping, but I think she had fun otherwise. 



We had a few snow days


We survived first grade


I’m looking forward to seven.  Everyday Meg teaches me something.  Can’t wait to see what she will teach me this year!  Meg, you are my everything.  I see you. 


First Day of Second Grade

How can meg already be in second grade?  It seems with every new grade, every birthday, I find myself asking how can time be going by so fast?  How can Meg be growing into such a beautiful young lady so quickly?  I guess I just need to accept that there is nothing I can do to stop the clock from moving forward.  Whether I like it or not, she’s growing up. 

Meg was so excited about the first day of second grade.  She was so easy to wake up on her first day.  There was no fighting about what she was going to wear, no fighting about brushing her hair or teeth and no fighting about what was for lunch.  It was a beautiful morning. 

I had to beg her to let me walk her in this year.  I have a feeling this may be the last year I’m going to be allowed to walk her in.  That morning, while Meg and I were eating breakfast, she actually asked me if I would be walking her into school when she was a freshman in college?  She’s such a smarty pants sometimes. 

As we walked into the school for the third year, I couldn’t help but think about the first day we walked into that school in 2009 for Kindergarten.  As I look back at the pictures from Kindergarten, I can’t believe how much she has changed.  Meg is no longer a little girl, she’s turning into a beautiful young lady. 

This year has gotten off to a much better start than Kindergarten and First Grade.  I hope that we will keep this momentum going forward. 

Meg, I love you more than you will ever know.  You are my everything!  I see you.
