Friday Favorites-4.8.22

Happy, Happy Friday! Whew! This week FLEW by! With being out of town on Monday, this week truly felt like it lasted all of two days. How’d that go by so quickly? I’m teaming up with my girl, Andrea, for FRIDAY FAVORITES! It’s that weekly link-up where we invite you all to join us by simply sharing some favorites. Please be sure to add your blog to the bottom of this post so we can all see them. 🙂

Today, well-actually tomorrow is going to be a BIG day in our house. We’ll officially have our first TEENAGER! Ebby Lee turns THIRTEEN tomorrow!

I know it’s so cliche to say but it really does feel like this picture was taken about a year ago, time is such a thief, and it literally is flying by right before my eyes. TIME, slow down!

This seventh grade year of middle school has been such a good one. Middle school can be so tricky but Ebby Lee is really finding herself this year. She’s finding her people and discovering what things she really enjoys doing.

As the oldest kid in a family with four, she kills it at the big sister role.

She’s super independent, super mothering to Bowen and Britt {Nixon won’t allow it}, and always happy to help with anything.

My goodness-how I wish I’d have had some of her confidence and eagerness to try new things when I was her age. This year she tried out for middle school volleyball, basketball and cheer. And while she didn’t love all three, she toughed it out and learned some great lessons.

We’re going to celebrate her birthday with some close friends next weekend. It’s gonna be FUN!

This weekend she has a volleyball tournament so we have a special birthday breakfast request from the birthday girl. I’m so thankful God chose me to be her mom. She’s caring, kind, witty, sweet, and has just the best sense of humor. I can’t wait to celebrate her tomorrow {and again next weekend}! We love you big, Ebby Lee! HAPPY 13TH BIRTHDAY!
