Maddie’s Fake 6th Birthday

Not my words!  Maddie herself called it her “fake” 6th birthday!

For the past couple of years, Maddie’s birthday has kind of been at an interesting time of the year.  On August 5th, we are usually back in Shanghai but there are not really any other kids back but work is in full swing so we haven’t had a kid birthday party yet.  This year we decided to have an early birthday party for Maddie with her friends that she has had in class all year long. It was a fun day indeed!  We ordered a huge cake for Maddie’s class, had gft bags for every kid in class, and gave the kids icecream just add a bit more sugar to their systems! :) Maddie’s classmates made a book for her where each person drew a picture and wrote a sentence about what they like about her.  As she read each page (and she did read them), she gigged in delight.  She was so happy….

The kids sang happy birthday to Maddie in English, Korean and Mandarin – where are we and how did we get here? :)

    Oh, my gosh! That was so much fun watching. She seems so grown up. And, the video of her riding her bicycle independently was spectacular! Perfect! You were so excited, which made it all the more fun. Maddie was so proud of herself, and she should be.

    Yea Maddie. And, Yea, Amelia for getting the helmut and trying to ride Maddie’s old bike. How fun was that!

    Love you all and miss ya.

    Hey, what a good idea – to have a fake birthday. At last she got a birthday party like the other kids.

    Hugs to all,
