Lulu turned SIX!
Our girl turned 6 on the 21st of September. She is such a spunky, joyful, little thing. She enjoyed her day of celebration. First, a birthday banner to walk into. Then cupcakes at lunch. (Chocolate with sprinkles, a family favorite.) I was able to let the principal step into my classroom for about five or ten minutes so that I could go to recess with Lydie's class and sing to her and serve her cupcakes.
Just as I knew she would, she has made a huge following of friends. It's actually crazy how many buddies she has. The grammar school (grades K-5) is out at 1:00, but the rhetoric and logic school (grades 6-12) get out at 3:00. Every now and then Lydie and I need to go upstairs to do something where the big kids are when she is done with school and they are still having school. EVERYBODY knows her and says hi. I have no idea how, but kids from every grade love to talk with her and hug her. It's so cute. She has three really special girls in my class who just adore her. So every afternoon after school Lydie writes them a note and leaves it in their desk. Then they write her back and leave her note in my bag. It goes on every day. And the girls in her kindergarten class are so precious. She loves them all and we have enjoyed the first few birthday parties this year, spending time with them and their families and getting to know them.
