We celebrated Elsa's birthday recently. What a cool kid she is. She woke up and chose to be happy because it was her birthday, with no real expectations of the day. She was just thrilled to have completed one more year of life.
I've had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with her this past month. Volunteering at school, going on field trips and hanging out with her friends. She has so much fun. Her friends are a loud, fun, and talented crew of kids up for anything, and Elsa is so kind, accepting and confident. It was so exciting for me to be with her in her element.
We went to a wedding recently where she was the only kids amongst a sea of wild 20 somethings. As soon as the music came on she hit the dance floor and partied like a champ. When asked if she wanted to sing karaoke, she did not hesitate. She just squeezes every drop of joy from life, no mater what the scene.
