I think we have found the perfect balance of celebrating big but not going overboard. For example, we used to get cupcakes and prizes and all crazy for school celebrations, home celebrations and party celebrations. Now, we pick up a couple dozen of iced sugar cookies on the way to school and let her wear a pretty dress instead of shorts and a shirt.
And she couldn't have been happier!
Her class was pretty excited about those cookies, too!
And big brother was so happy to be at HER school instead of HIS school - he's already in love with summer.
Little sister on the other hand, notsomuch. Ha!
We kicked off the birthday weekend just right - next up... the actual party!
