All Things What The Girls Wrote When They Grow Up.


As we move through Track Break, there are many creative opportunities. We have a gazillion art supplies but I have to admit that some of my favorite moments are when I see them huddled over a notebook with a pen in hand, writing something that's oh-so-very-important.

So here's a sampling of Kata's latest musings in her Writing Journal:
What The Girls Wrote When They Grow Up
When I grow up, I'm going to be a grandma.
When I grow up, I'm going to be a big sister.
When I grow up, I'm going to be a rock star.
When I grow up, I'm going to be a teacher.
When I grow up, I'm going to be a vet.
When I grow up, I'm going to be a ballet dancer.
When I grow up, I'm going to be a store owner.
When I grow up, I'm going to be a wedding dress designer.
I'm not sure where she got the prompt idea. She claims she just sat down and wrote it. And I believe her. She's only seven years old, after all. Do you remember these lists from when you were that age?

I do. I wanted to be a figure skater, a teacher, a businesswoman, a wife, a mother and a writer. I think, at this point, most of those boxes have been checked off. I'm looking forward to Kata's journey. A ballet dancing, wedding dress designing, rock-star-store-owner-vet will have tons of stories to tell when she's a grandma.

How about you? Do you remember your list?

And Kata can be all of those things and more! So very very sweet she is and with such a loving and supporting momma, what else could she ask for?

HAHAHAHAHA! Marye,if only that were all true. She's just a kid and I'm just a mama. You know the routine well, I'm sure.

It's true, Kathy. We are all still Works in Progress. And hopefully, many more items will be added to our lists. :) Great reminder!
