You have more spunk than anyone I know! You have lots of energy, love an exciting time and are eager to try new things. You love going places and can talk to anyone of all ages. When we are not going places, you create your own adventure at home. Most often your adventures are 'old fashioned' adventures (in period clothing) and you end up at the cracked rock in the woods, pine stream village out back, the secret garden or the hundred acrewood, all landmarks that you have named on our property. You also enjoy traveling via bike on your adventures. Even in the winter. Even taking a bath is an adventure in your entertaining pretend world!
While you aren't always eager to try things that look different, you almost always do and then you decide you like it. Eggs are your favorite. You can eat more eggs than a grown man. You also are a big fan of salads and any crisp, ripe fruit. Your favorite cake is coffee cake. Favorite ice cream is Mint Chip.
You love animals and are a true animal whisperer. You love all sorts of crafty things (drawing, crochet, painting, weaving, sewing, needlepoint), gardening and cooking. You like to write and read. You love to be read to and listen to audio books. In fact, we can't go anyplace in the car without you saying "Can you turn the audiobook on?" Your favorite Audio Book is Mrs. Piggle Wiggle lately. You listen to it over and over. The books we've read lately that you love most are Hattie and Hudson, Mandy, Adventures of Lily Lapp and Green Smoke.
Although you sometimes need help staying focused, you're a quick learner and catch onto things quickly. This year you have been fantastic at all extracurricular activities, teachers enjoy having you in class. You quip the most entertaining quotes and can sputter scripture out with ease.
While you keep us on our toes, your daddy and I know that our lives would never be as exciting without you in them.
I love you dearly, my Audra Grace!
