Happy Birthday to the sweetest, most creative and imaginative 9 year old I know.
Greta LOVES to write. I mean, she LOVES to write. She fills pages and pages with stories on a daily basis. And, they are good....very, very good for her age. In my totally neutral and unbiased opinion that is, a lot of them are better than some of the drivel that gets published today. Look for her name on a best seller in 20 or 30 years.
Greta is also super sweet and has a real heart for God. She loves reading about the Saints and seems to have a special affinity for St. Therese. She spends a lot of time very patiently playing with her younger brother and sister and is generally very cheerful and fun to be around.
She keeps me busy with asking 2,000,000 questions a day, is turning into quite the social butterfly and is just overall, awesome. We're so blessed to have her.
Here's 9 years of her life, in pictures.
