You are 7 years old now! In your “Star of the Week” presentation for school, one of the things you told your class was that Asher means ‘happy’ in Hebrew. If anyone had a name that matched their personality, it is you! I love your can-do attitude, your curiosity, and your smile (doesn’t your mouth ever get tired of smiling?) I am thankful every day that you are a part of our family.
This year, you got to….
*visit your grandma and family in Portland and stay the night in a yurt on the Oregon coast
*train for and complete your first kid’s triathlon
*spend two weeks at outdoor day camp learning about water and bugs
*play two seasons of soccer
*hike part of the Appalachian trail
*ride on the back of a motorcycle!
This year, you learned how to …
*add and subtract numbers
*swim the length of the pool
*make your own breakfast
*boogie board in the warm East Coast waters
*play the piano (at least it is a work in progress)
*say many more things to your abuelos in Spanish
*read chapter books to yourself (versus out loud….phew!)
Happy Birthday, Ashercito! We love you!
