Well it has been quite a while since I did an update on big sister! Hallie and her personality are growing by the day! Hallie girl, you have taken this pandemic head on and have been so brave and adapting to our ever changing world!
Kindergarten, though it was cut short, was just the best experience for you! You made so many friends and just adored your sweet teacher who is now one of your heroes! I know no matter what 1st grade looks like, that you will succeed! You’ve flourished so much this past year and holy cow you are reading like a champ! Mom and Dad are so proud of you!
You have the very best sense of humor and love to make people laugh! Mommy and Daddy are so proud of the big girl you are becoming! You stand up for what is right and have such a good moral compass! Especially if you have a friend being picked on! You are always the first to stick up for them. I can’t tell you how proud that makes me.
We have taken a break from Ballet since the pandemic hit, but are looking forward to going back as soon as we feel safe! We were so looking forward to watching you in your first ever Nutcracker production this year. I guess that will have to wait until next year. You still practice dancing all the time and even teach Elise steps every now and then too.
You are killing it at Karate. Even though classes are on zoom, much to your dismay, you are now a blue (ALMOST PURPLE!) belt! You have big dreams of being a black belt one day, and I just know you will make that dream come true!
You are the very best big sister ever! Elise loves you so much and looks up to you in everything you do. You both love to sing along to Frozen 2 and you requested a Frozen 2 birthday cake this year!
Hallie Anne, you are so smart and still memorize all the facts you possibly can about animals! Wild Kratts is still your favorite show. We had a blast taking you to see them live in January! Since we couldn’t have a real party this year, we had fun making our car into a safari van and delivering animal cupcakes and party favors to some of your friends! You love cheetahs the most and aspire to run as fast as one some day. You still want to go to Vet school when you grow up and want to be a vet or a Zoologist! If you had your way, you would also have a show just like the Wild Kratts, “but all girls!” Along with the Kratt Brother’s you just love Bindi Irwin and dressed up as her for Halloween!
You love artwork and spend so much time drawing and creating! You also love science and building and enjoy tinkering and inventing things with Daddy and Uncle Adam.
Being outside on your new scooter is one of your favorite things ever! You also learned to swim this Summer and even jumped off the diving board!
You love love love your Stella girl, and take such good care of her!
Sweetest bean you are just growing so dang fast! We are so blessed that you are our girl and love you so very much!
