Happy Birthday, P.!

P. turned 9 yesterday. She is definitely the quietest member of the family; I often joke that she needs sub-titles so we know what she's thinking. Though recently, she has been more chatty and sociable. It's nice to hear what's going on in her head...because there's a lot there. She is very imaginative and crafty and likes nothing better than to be making things. Enjoy this picture of her I took today. Sometimes getting a picture of this child is more difficult than taking one of an animal in the wild. I love this girl, quirks and all. Happy birthday P.

We celebrated P.'s birthday on Wednesday since yesterday was the annual homeschool day at the Six Flags amusement park near us. We have gone with our close friends the P family and the H-S family for many years now and it has become a tradition with our three families.
Here is the group of our children (plus a couple of parents) from this year. (I should say four families because the past couple of years another mom and her daughter have joined us as well.) Between us there are 23 children, born on three different continents and four different countries, with ages between 2 1/2 months and 17. As usual, we all had a great time

Here is a picture of K. with one of the P family children. They are 'driving' ladybugs in the little kids' area, where I always spend most of the day. By the time I'm free to go on the big roller coasters again, I may not want to ride them anymore.

And just because, another picture of the babies. It's not their most attractive photograph, but I think it's funny because their eyes are so wide in it.

Wow. When did P get the hair cut???? She looks so much older!

Her hair is actually as long as usual...it's just pulled back in a ponytail. But the ponytail is a day old since hair brushing is not high on P's list of things she enjoys, so it gives the appearance of being shorter.

I agree she is losing that little girl look. :-(
