Being 8 is great! When you are 8 you have alot of responsibilities. And people trust you to do the rite thing. Why is it so special to be eight? Because you get Baptized! Why is getting baptized so special? Because you are member of the chuch . So I am greatfull . Because Heavenly Father created me and even you. So if you need help or comfort he will be there for you.
On my birthday week our volleyball girls were playing in Casper in the championship tournament . And in a surprising way me and my mom were going to watch. I was excited. Then we stayed at a hotel. At the hotel there was an indoor pool and hot tub. We only went in the hot tub because the water in the pool was freezing but once in a while I would stick my foot in the water but when we had to go I started splashing my feet in it. I have a crazy imagination so I imagined there was a shark in the pool. At first it creeped me out then we left and I felt a little bit better.
My mom said to take a quick shower so I did and then she said get dressed quick too so we do not miss any thing at the tournament. We went shopping for my birthday and I bought a new art kit because I love to make things. We made it to the game and we did not miss any thing. And we won 1st place. I was proud of the girl’s because they tried their best. I even drew a picture of a trophy for the team and my mom said I was not even watching the game. I was! I was also missing my dad so I made a picture for him to!
My mom took me to dinner with some friends from our town and they sang happy birthday to me and brought me an angel food cake covered with cherry sauce and whipped cream.
It was sooooo good. We drove back home that nite because I wanted to be with my dad and my brother on Sunday my birthday.
For my birthday I got a mood ring from my mom, a blue watch from my brother, new spurs from my daddy, lego friends from my aunt and uncle, a sewing machine from my She-Sha and a cuddle up it from my other grandma! My dad even made me a deer skull and painted it pink so it would match my room. I love it!
My mom also made me an angel food cake birthday cake with raspberries and whipped cream because I loved the one I got in Casper so much. I just ate a plain piece of cake because I don’t like raspberries!
I really like being 8. It is the best thing in the world. So if you are 7, I bet you can’t wait to turn eight!
