Somehow I now have an 8 year old! Marlie turned 8 at the end of August and we celebrated with lots of friends. I took a group of girls to do karaoke and they were so cute singing their little hearts out.
After we returned from karaoke, some of the boys in the neighborhood and all the kids parents joined us for brownies and ice cream. Even though I offered to make her a cake, Marlie insisted on brownies which was even easier on me.
I'm so proud of my big 8 year old after going through another move this year and all the changes that come with it. She is the epitome of a resilient military kid.
