Hi Paige!




I know you read my blog ... you forgot to clear the history last night : )

I just wanted to tell you I love ya and I am proud of the young lady you are. You've had such a big week. First, you became a citizen. That moment, when Judge Gray said that you were the newest U.S. citizen, I had such a sense of pride.

Secondly, I am not surprised that you were voted class Good Citizen. You ARE a good girl. I don't think I tell you that often enough, but you are. You are so funny, kind, sassy, sensitive, strong, creative, lovable, snuggly, independent, bright, beautiful from the inside out. I am happy that your peers see these qualities in you and voted you for being a good citizen. That means they respect you. Always remember to be kind to others and treat them with respect. We never know what others have been through or the journey that life has in store for them. Love your fellow human and don't judge others. Continue to be a good citizen!

Lastly, boy did we have fun last night making cornbread for your 4-H project!!! I am glad that you told me to just sit and talk to you while you made your cornbread. You made me proud when you said that you needed to do this by yourself, "because afterall, how can I learn if I have my sissy do my work" : ) You are right. Too bad you didn't place on your cornbread today, but I think you had fun and that is all that matters. I am proud of you for coming in 1st place for the recycled project. I love that you think recycling is important and remind me to recycle, when I forget so often.

I don't tell you often enough little one exactly how much I respect you... Sorry for that! I want to tell you now how much I look up to you! I want to be like you when I grow up : )

Sis loves you to the moon and back! Congrats on your big week! Here's to many more : )

PS- If you wonder how I know you read my blog, it's because I'm your sissy, that's how!!! : )
