My girl is 11! I can hardly believe it. LaLa is starting her journey into becoming a young lady, and I can already see glimpses of that future! She is a beautiful girl...inside and out, with a heart of compassion for those that struggle. She is a bit on the rebellious side, prefering to 'try it herself' rather than taking advice from those who have 'been there, done that'. She has a sense of humor and quick wit to rival the most talented of comedians and she is thoughtful towards her friends. We are blessed with this
little girl young lady of ours!
Here are some pictures from her birthday party!
LaLa with friend 'Z', a friend from our homeschool coop

LaLa, 'R' & Sassafrass "WOW, Look at all that FOOD!"
(We ate at Buca Di Beppo's...great Italian food served 'family style')
"Happy 11th Bday LaLa!"
I think she's ready to dig in, don't you?
The cake on the inside. So colorful!
