Sunday is my sweet baby girl, Helen’s birthday! She will be 8 years old. Oh my. Let me
say type that again: She will be 8 years old.
Do you see this precious 4-year-old here? The bottom pic was Helen’s pre-K pic. She has such a sweet smile.
And…well, God answered that prayer 100 times over I think. 🙂

She has grown so much since then. Here is her Kindergarten pic:
Helen is in 2nd grade and therefore is in the midst of preparing for First Communion after having participated in First Reconciliation a month ago. Helen takes her preparation very seriously: she studies her questions and she successfully badgers her over-committed mom to work with her once a week. I couldn’t be more proud of the fact that her teacher told us at Parent-Teacher conferences this year that she is a “hard worker.”
It made me proud because I was always described as a “hard worker” too and I love it that Helen has taken that trait and made it her own.
