On May 9th Kaylynn turned 7. She is my sweet, energetic, social butterfly. She loves friends, ballet, God, and is very passionate about things she believes in whether that's being treated fairly or helping those in need. Being homeschooled means that I have to go out of my way sometimes to create more social interactions, and Kaylynn is more social in nature, so my goal this year was to have friend time for her birthday.
Kaylynn's birthday was on Wednesday which is also ballet day. We invited all her ballet friends to join us at a nearby park right after class for some playtime and cupcakes. Instead of gifts Kaylynn wanted to collect donations for a shelter. It was all her idea, and she was super excited to sort the donations as soon as we got home. After Davin got home from work, we went to her favorite restaurant, Sweet Tomatoes, for dinner. Then she got her gift from us - a new pink bike. She's getting a bit big for the little red one she learned on.
That weekend we had family over for Mother's day and her birthday celebration with them.
The following weekend we closed the birthday shenanigans with a pony party for her and friends from church and AWANA. The girls had fun brushing, feeding and riding Rosie. This was way more birthdaying than normal, but she had a blast having special time with her friends.
