Dance like a butterfly

Yesterday the Juniorette celebrated her 8th birthday. Her ‘Party’ this year was a horse & carriage ride, followed by a picnic with her friends. The weather held out and the forecast rain did not spoil the day. The carriage ride was lots of fun and the Juniorette and her friends had a great time. The highlight for the Juniorette was when she was allowed to take the reins - she was beaming from ear to ear.

The Juniorette had a new bike at the start of the summer, which was an early birthday present from us (not much use getting a new bike just when the weather is about to turn bad!), but her wish from her English grandparents was a punch ball and boxing gloves. Where she got this idea from I do not know but she’s been hitting hell out of the ball and really enjoying it. Look out Muhammad Ali.

Alles Gute zum Geburtstag!

I'm so envious of the punching bag.

Now you gotta watch out for bulging biceps since she's already got quick wits.

The only thing I find sad about birthdays is that once they've come. You can never get them back. Kids grow up so fast.

Whoo! Happy Birthday Juniorette! Yep, she won't be having any trouble with those pesky boys if she keeps up with the boxing.
