Almost Double Digits

Thank you “Crafty European” for sending Britain a surprise to
dress up the school uniform for her birthday!

Recapping our favorite 9 year-olds birthday festivities today in photos…

Evie helped me take cake and games to Britain’s class for the last period of school.
“One of these things is not like the other”
My tall, blonde-haired, blue-eyed bebes totally stick out like sore-thumbs among all their beautiful dark haired Asian classmates!
We then squeezed 10 people in a tuk-tuk (new personal record) to come back home for a small “BEACH” themed pool party at our apartment.  Britain has been blessed with some super sweet girls for friends this year and we are so grateful for how that has helped her adapt and begin to feel more at home here.

Britain, we are so proud of the decisions you are making….your leadership (she was just voted in as Elementary School Vice-President)…..your compassionate spirit….your quirky sense of humor and how you make us laugh…..your ‘not-easily-ruffled’ personality……your teachability and humility….your spunk and charm….your devotion and loyalty….and the perfect place smack-dab in the middle of the family that you fill so beautifully!  More than anything, your daddy and I are grateful that your heart is seeking God’s and you are growing in your knowledge of and relationship with Him.  May you never tire of that life-long pursuit!  Happy Birthday to our beautiful Britain Aliyah.  We love you to bits Boo!!
