#1 is officially growing up

August 22, 2014

Our sweet girl surprised us this week with her maturity and ease at transitioning into the realms of growing up and becoming a young lady. I couldn’t be more proud or happy for her. She deserves all accolades ever given a soon-to-be eleven year old.

She’s a fantastic big sister, a great student, responsible and generous, and loving. She takes life very seriously and loves to talk about everything. I’m continually amazed at her spirit so filled with virtue and sensitivity. I know God has a great plan for her and I’m so happy to see her already laying the foundation for great things. Day in and day out she teaches us all a great deal of what it means to be obedient, hard working, and self-sacrificing. I’m so honored to be her mom and watch her grow into such a great young gal.

She’s also well on her way to becoming a Wilton certified cake decorator. She still talks about maybe becoming a baker some day. For now, it’s a great hobby. We are so blessed to have found a teacher that doesn’t mind having a younger student in the class. It’s a great Thursday night event for her. She finishes level 2 next week and was especially looking forward to tonight’s class on flowers. Aren’t her lilies really great?

Not sure what this flower represents, but I like it’s pattern.

She’s already envisioning her final cake decoration for next week’s class. I can’t wait to see it. She also hopes to gift that cake to friends who may make their way to Atlanta next week also.

I love you sweet girl. Thanks for making daddy and I so proud.

    very well said Sara Lin, as always but have to say for the record that the saying is “fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree” is so perfect here. Both you & Nate did a very good job in raising her to be selfless, self reliant, kind, compassionate…God has blessed her with many talents including her huge heart. Loved spending time with Ms Katie Ruth this summer, the time passed way too quickly 🙂 Love you all!!! So proud of you Katie…what an AWESOME job you did on your flowers, very detailed !
