Zoe's 2nd Birthday!

Zoe turned 2 a couple weeks ago!  She is definitely a toddler now.  Running is one of her absolute favorite things.  Pretty much all her words are real words now.  She's even begun saying "My shoes" instead of "Zoe's shoes", and "I would like some crackers" instead of "Zoe would like some crackers"  :)   She's been playing pretty well with her friends, but as all toddlers do, she does suffer a bit from the "that's mine" syndrome! haha.   This month was a major birthday month!   The first week, our friend's baby was born, that same week was Gage's brother's 12th birthday,  the next week was Zoe's birthday, 4 days later was my mother-in-law Jenny's birthday, and the next week was Zoe's best friend Kjersten's birthday!  There were 3 birthday parties this month, and many more birthdays I didn't list.   Zoe certainly got her fill of birthday cake!

The skirt she is wearing in the picture was made by Jenny! Isn't it adorable? It was the perfect thing for her to wear on her birthday.  Jenny also made her a Winnie the Pooh dress to wear at her birthday party!

Zoe's party was fun.  She "played" the Wii, opened presents, stared at her birthday candle, ate cake, and looked cute.   Unfortunately the only one of her little friends that could make it to the party was Evan! We're so thankful that Evan was there :)   Everyone else at the party was an adult.  We still had a great time though!

Zoe was blessed with so many amazing gifts this year.  A magna doodle, her first skates, adorable clothing, a little keyboard, an overnight bag that looks like a stuffed animal (so cute!), fridge phonics (she LOVES this!), her first barbie, a new Veggie Tales DVD and many many more.  I used some of her birthday money to buy her some new books, as well as a bunch of adorable spring/summer clothes so she's almost set for the warmer months!

Thank you to all who came to the party and/or provided her with a gift!  She now has everything she could ever need, and then some.

A New School Year, A New Perspective on Education

What is the purpose of education? I believe the sole purpose of all education is to know God and make Him known.  Proverbs 1:7 says that...
