And here is an after picture. Her feelings got really hurt today. Poor thing.

For the past six months, Liezl has been answering "almost eleven" when she gets asked how old she is. And now she finally can say just eleven. Although I am sure she will be almost twelve soon. She got all dressed up for her special day. I would have never worn a dress to school when I was in sixth grade! I would not have even thought of wearing jewelery! But this girl loves fashion and nail polish and jewelery and always looks amazing. She asked to go out for dinner at McDonald's for her birthday. This girl has been obsessed with those Golden Arches since she was tiny. Silly girl.

And they are off! The school bus just left and Cora and I have the day to ourselves. I am sad to see them all leave, but am excited for the fun they will have. Liezl started MIDDLE SCHOOL this year!!! She gets to take the early bus, she has her own locker, six periods to find (including gym, band, and choir), and no recess.

Our second week of Utah was spent with the gustafsons. We loved being with cousins, aunts and uncles, Emee, and Oupa. Ava adores babies and I would find her mothering teddy all the time.
We are home now and are trying to process how to enter into real life after such a long, amazing trip.

My girls and I have spent the last week in Utah visiting family. Whenever I come back, I remember how much I love and miss it here. We had a family reunion up Ogden canyon with my family. It was so nice to spend time with my siblings and their kids. Liezl organized a play for all of the cousins to preform on the first night.
The kids were so excited to surprise grandpa with a silly string attack. Waiting in the bushes for over five minutes to ambush him was worth the wait.
I would find these two in the morning reading together. Like aunt, like niece.
We are still going strong and have another week of fun planned.
