Happy Birthday – Hood #3…

April 11th, 2012 · 17 Comments

Excuse us, we are taking a bit of an unintentional blog break – turns out our internet is on the blink and rather than stressing I decided to see it as an opportunity to rest up and gather ourselves for a year of school ahead… but I couldn’t miss out on a celebration of note:

May your year ahead be packed with fun and fabulous adventures and new things to do and great things to learn…

It has been a while since you turned ten…

It has been a while since you turned nine…

It has been a while since you turned eight…

Somehow we blinked and the years flew past…

    Happy birthday, Hood #3! Eleven is a great age to be. 🙂 My child #4 will be 11 next Monday, April 16th. She is also going to be doing Core 5, starting in July. She’d love to write to you, if you’d like a new pen friend. Hope you have had a wonderful day, with a trip to the Ice Cafe. 🙂 Lillian
