Maeve's 8 year stats

 Maeve had a great check up and didn't need to get any shots this time since she had already gotten her flu shot and her 1st COVID shot. She was relieved that she didn't need any more and everything else checked out great.

Height: 50.2 inches

Weight: 54.67 lbs

I believe those are both in the 45-50% range.

Maeve is 8

Wow - 8 years old! Maeve loves to do crafts, read, watch TV, gymnastics, soccer, and is looking forward to ski racing this winter.

We celebrated her birthday early as she wanted a destination birthday like her sister had. In Arizona, we ate at a delicious outdoor restaurant, swam in the pool and opened gifts at the hotel. 

On her actual birthday, she lost a tooth and asked for a present from the tooth fairy (which she got - a cool craft with coloring with sticks). We had donuts with family and fun at the Science Museum watching the Oceans Imax show and playing with the exhibits and trying to catch snowflakes. We then had a nice dinner at Grandma Jan and Grandpa Steve's house. The next day we went bowling with 3 friends - Grace, Ella, and Luella. She enjoyed scoring the highest points at 97 and then loved the arcade, of course.

She sure had her fair share of celebrations this year.

All Saints Day- Cecilia

 One of my favorite events is the All Saints Day Mass for Kindergartners and Cecilia chose St. Cecilia, the Patron Saint of Music, which is fitting for her because she loves music and her name was in part chosen because St. Cecilia was my confirmation name. She did a great job in Mass and now wants to play 'Oh When the Saints go Marching In' on repeat.

Halloween 2021

 We had a great time at Halloween this year with lots of parties, trick or treating with friends, and a surprise Kindergarten trick-or-treat event!

We dressed up in traditional costumes this year:

Maeve, a cat

Cecilia, a witch (which is a classic outfit from Eric's childhood)

Kyle, a pumpkin

And then a Vampire and a Skeleton
