Happy 11th Birthday My Beautiful Girl...

Today my daughter celebrated her 11th birthday. She was such a trooper to wait until dinner tonight (when Daddy came home) to open her presents. She adored all her presents and loved her cake. Happy Birthday my beautiful girl....

This past week she wrote a poem for school that was titled "I AM". It is one of my favorite grammar assignments that the kids have to do. I just love reading what they write and I am sure after reading hers you'll be able to tell what she will be when she grows up. With her permission, this is her poem...


I am an animal lover who likes books.
I wonder what will happen in the future.
I hear the wind whispering.
I see trees like they're alive.
I want to help out people.
I am an animal lover who likes books.

I pretend to be a vet.
I feel glad when I help.
I touch silky dog fur.
I worry about lonely animals.
I cry when I see them.
I am an animal lover who likes books.

I understand that no one's perfect.
I say "let's help animals!"
I dream about pets I'll have in the future.
I try to be a good learner.
I know I will go to Heaven.
I am an animal lover who likes books.

  1. Happy Birthday, my sweet girl! Wish I could have been there in person instead of just talking on the telephone but that is always nice too! I loved your writing assignment. I love animals and books too!

    Miss and love you,
