Yesterday, our bee turned 5 ½. I’m without a cupcake pan in our trailer, so she had cheesecake to accompany the “happy half-birthday” song, which no one complained about. 🙂 We spent the day mostly working, then went to a big cat sanctuary that has 78 lions, tigers, bobcats, and lynx. There was a baby tiger that Zara (and everyone) was enamored with. In the evening, we went for a walk around the lake and then watched an episode of Anne with an E (a Netflix show based on Anne of Green Gables). And of course we read her new half-birthday books.
At 5 ½, Zara is still a whirlwind of energy. She go-go-gos until she crashes, although she still regularly denies that she ever needs to sleep. I take photos like these just to prove to her that she does indeed sleep…and how angelic she looks when she does it. She’s becoming a reader just like her big sister, loves arts and crafts, and is a wonderful big sister.
We celebrated her 5th birthday just as we got settled in the trailer and now her half just as we embarked on our first big adventure. ❤️ Here’s to another 6 months of adventure for our wild and crazy middle girl in her 5th year.
