She is hilarious. She says the most funny things in such a sincere, serious way (not trying to be funny), that sometimes I can't help but laugh. She can just be so intense in the way she says things. I wish that I could capture her mannerisms on the blog because I love them. Even though she does have a very mature, somewhat serious side, she's also VERY silly and goofy. She will crack up over the craziest little things (quite often this involves potty humor) and run something into the ground like you wouldn't believe. She has a hard time turning the silly down a notch or two when it gets out of hand. This is probably the biggest challenge that we deal with with Aubrey at this stage. We talk about and pray for self-control a lot with her :)
She has a sweet little heart. A lot of times in the evenings, she'll remind us to have our family devotion. I love that the Lord uses little children to lead adults sometimes. It's both humbling and convicting.
She loves school. She's very good at memorization. It amazes me how quickly she can memorize something. Way faster than I can, that's for sure. It's true that her little mind is just a sponge right now. She's very creative. Her two absolute favorite things are Legos (she spends HOURS building things everyday) and art. Right now, she says that she wants to be an artist when she grows up, and her favorite thing at school is art. I can't wait to see what the Lord has planned for our Aubrey, and I am overwhelmed with thankfulness that He gave her to us!
That night, we went to a going away party for some friends who are moving to Malawi. Aubrey got to play with a lot of little friends and eat junk food. Perfect birthday for a 6 year old ;)
|Um, don't mind the random cup sitting there and the water drips on the butcher paper. Ha! The party was fun; it wasn't perfect.|
