Sophia is Six!

Our first born, Sophia, turned six last week!
She woke up to birthday presents and decorations of her favorite Brazilian character (Monica), on her special day! 

Before setting off to school, we sang "Happy Birthday" to her at breakfast, placing a candle on her waffles.

At school we had a little party for Sophia too! 

On Sophia's birthday, I also attended a Mother's Day Tea at Sophia's school, where Sophia sang along with fellow students to honor all the mothers.  It was so sweet! 

For many months now, we have been hoping to take Sophia to an amusement park for her sixth birthday.  Thanks to some birthday money we got from family, we were able to take her and a friend on this super special birthday outing!

About to enter the Monica Park for children!
Sophia and her friend Marianne enjoyed riding lots of rides!

Our beautiful Jessie enjoying the merry-go-round!

 Sophia was super brave and rode her very first roller-coaster with Daddy!

We saw an impressive show with dancing and music!

And Sophia even got a special photo with two of the characters at the park - her favorite character named Monica, and Monica's friend Magali. 

Sophia loved her sixth birthday, and we made many fun memories in celebration of her life!

We love our daughter Sophia, and we are extremely thankful for who the Lord has created her to be.  She is strong, spunky, determined, decisive, creative, kind, and generous.  She is truly a unique little girl who continually teaches us many lessons as parents and as children of God.  We are excited to see how Sophia will grow and develop as the years pass. It is truly an honor to be Sophia's parents, and we love her immensely! 

Happy 6th Birthday Sophia!
