Frances turned nine. It was particularly exciting for her this year as she was in school. Usually, she is on summer break. That said, with the snow storms this winter, she was in school. PARTY.
She surprised me and decided to skip soccer practice and instead chose a family dinner, plus Grandpa Gordon, at Pine Street Market.
I am unbelievable honored and grateful to be her mom. She has so much grit, resiliency, and compassion. She is funny and thoughtful. She is an amazing middle sibling. She is a joy to be around, her energy and enthusiasm are contagious. I love her...and probably jsut as important...I really, really like her. I would like her and want my kid to be friends with her if she wasn't my kid.
