Audra, you are EIGHT!  And you are thrilled to be 8.  You have your big day all planned, complete with a grocery list, agenda and wrapped presents that you made for yourself and wrapped for yourself. You have more spunk than anyone I know. Everything with you is an adventure. 

You are hilarious. The stuff you say, your vocabulary, your ideas. You keep us in stitches.  You spend most of your life moving, cartwheeling, biking fast, swimming underwater, being upside down or toting an animal around with you. You have much more energy than your parents. You are always up for an adventure. 

Things you hate:  Waiting. Things that are boring. Tidying. Anything you feel the effort isn't worth it. Being alone. Certainly keeps life interesting!

You love books. You will always stop everything to listen to me read to you, to read yourself or to listen to an audio book. You also love crafts. Dressing up old fashioned. But most of all, you really love your animals. 

One really great quality about you is you don't worry about a thing.  You don't really care about anything tangible.  You could lose all your money and that would be fine.  You could have nothing but the same outfit to wear on repeat. That would be fine. You could permanently lose one shoe, but have the other. That would be fine.  You typically live in the moment and are happy with whatever is present. 

You love people, family, siblings. You're a talker. Love to be around people. Love your friends. Love to write, especially in cursive.  Spelling things correctly is a waste of time in your book, but your creative spelling gets a smile out of us.  You are incredibly generous. We know the sure way to get your face to light up with delight.  Compliments. You radiate when you hear someone pour on the love.  

Audra, I think you are a mighty special girl and I am so thankful for the spunk you bring to our life. 
 I forgot to ask you the typical questions I ask every year about your future (favorites, what you want to be when you grow up, etc). Check back later, I will be sure to post them.
