Happy Birthday – Hood #3…

April 11th, 2012 · 18 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:


Hood #3 is eleven, and thrilled to be so…

To our girl with the sandy knees…

To our reader of millions of books…

To our teacher of dances…

To our serious cyclist…

To our scientist in training…

To our artist of note…

To our greatest observer…

To our photographer in progress…

To our chef in training…

To our leaper and adventurer…

To our gal with friends all over the world…

To our blower of bubbles…

To our maker of music…

To our crafter of deserts…

To our reader of more books…

And even more books:

To our live-er of life…

Happy Brilliant Birthday…

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…


Can’t wait for many more brilliant years together!!! May eleven be the greatest year ever!!! Love you lots!!!

    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
