Raine turned six on Sunday!
She waited all day long for Daddy to get home so she could open her presents. Our home teacher and his wife (Brother and Sister Jeppson) came to help us celebrate too.
Raine had been wanting new princess shoes ever since the ones that the Eastman’s gave her for her second birthday broke. After MUCH looking, I finally found a pair that were big enough to fit her 8-inch long feet! She was thrilled.
She is always happy to get crafting supplies. It’s the one gift that she’s sure to love every time!
And here is her birthday song:
Everything Raine does is cerebral in nature: reading, writing, imagining, and pretending. The best word to describe her is CREATIVE! The glimpses we get into her little mind are always full of colorful new worlds and ideas that, no doubt, span far greater scenes than can possibly be imagined by someone who isn’t experiencing it with her. I love when she explains something going on in her mind and I recognize it as a twist on some reality that she has interpreted as only a child can!
Raine is always reading. She will finish two Magic Tree House books in a single day when we don’t have much going on. Any spare minute she can find she pulls out a book and starts flying through the pages. Then she will tell us about the wild adventures and historical events that she learned about.
Raine is still a social butterfly who loves being with friends. She is kind to those around her and confident in her abilities. She is always looking for ways to help the poor or to simply brighten someone’s day. It is fun to watch her engage with the world and learn so many new things. She is a brilliant, funny, sweetheart of a girl and we really love her!
