Spring is our big birthday time around here. 5 birthdays in 2 months.
Margarita's was a few weeks ago, but, I was so wrapped up in the little photo project that I didn't blog about it before. Here's my baby 10 years ago when she was turning 1 year old (sadly, this is the best picture I have of her on that day-how did that happen???):
What can I say about Margarita? Just that you should all be jealous that I have such an awesome daughter-I really don't think they come much better. Sure, we have little disagreements at times causing her to leave us notes like this one:
But, those moments are few and far between. If I could freeze her age at 11 years old, I really think I'd give it some thought; she's:
She gets great grades and is a good friend to many at school. Here she is with her Destination Imagination team that won their country challenge last week:
They acted out their own updated version of three little pigs complete with songs and dances they had written and choreographed. She is so excited to travel next month to Tennessee, of all places, to compete in the global finals.
Her two goals this year at school are (I repeat, she gets excellent grades, so it's not like the girl's not motivated, but these are her two goals):
1) to not miss a single day (except for school related activities)
2) to wear the same Nike tennis shoes everyday
She takes them very seriously.
I feel so grateful everyday that she is my daughter. Happy Birthday Margarita!
