Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

A “Sort of” Letter (for E)

On August 31 I posted a “sort of” letter for DJ and promised to post another (also begun on June 23 but then still in the works) for our E:

“YOU” (at almost ten and a half)

[How did our Precious Little Punkin Spice get to be ten and a half...?!]

You’re as energetic as ever, still running or jumping (rarely walking) from one place (or one topic) to another.

You love reading – in both English and Spanish – more than ever. You’ve added Encyclopedia Brown (Boy Detective”) to your perennial favorites (the adventures of Sapo Ruperto, The Chronicles of Narnia and The Hobbit).

You’re a good student, though often and easily distracted. (Ahem!)

You seem to be gifted in writing. (And I’m still very proud of your having placed in the top seven out of 260+ contestants in your category in last year’s national writing contest.)

You love crafts, especially making jewelry with beads and (most recently) learning crochet and origami.

You love Uruguay and – to the delight of your Mommy’s heart – consider yourself Uruguayan!

You love soccer – and especially our national team!

You are a highly sensitive (and rather dramatic!) person.

You love music and are doing well in piano lessons (and miscellaneous impromptu singing opportunities).

You’re a “people person” – in spite of your initial tendency to feel shy.

You’re very tender-hearted; you notice which classmates are “left out” and are quick to be a friend.

At the end of August and in this last week, I’ve added a few more notes...

This school year you’ve been on the receiving end of unkindness and discrimination. But we’re encouraged that you’re continuing to learn “to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.”

There are so many more aspects we treasure about you, the kind of moments that are practically impossible to capture with a camera. We’re especially thankful that you like to talk about “everything” with your Daddy and me.

We’re so glad you’re our Little Lady! We love you very much!

[She’s Elizabeth, and she approved this post!]
