When I asked her if she wanted me to wake the 3 younger kids to sing and have doughnuts with her before she left for school she said no. Her reason? "I don't want all the crazy."
She was just happy reading her new Tiger Beat that was packed inside her new backpack.
Since she had to sacrifice her End of Year Track party for Matthew's preschool graduation, I told her we could all go out to dinner as a special treat. While we were there I asked the other kids what they liked best about Mary.
Annie wasted no time in answering with an excited, "She's my sister!"
Tommy: "She's a good drawer."
Matt: "She's a good babysitter at the playground." (she's in charge while I watch the boys' baseball games.)
Billy: "She's energetic and playful."
For dessert we headed home to have Cherry Cheese Tarts.
When I was growing up, instead of a cake, I asked my Mom to make these for me. When Mary heard about them, she wanted to have them too.

Such happy events for a Wednesday!
