so i cant hardly believe it but sophia is now 5 years old. when did this happen?! she starts kindergarten this year and while i am looking forward to some free time (wow when did having 1 kid instead of 2 start to feel like free time??) im not sure if im ready for this step. i can remember the first time they put her in my arms and i felt like this day was forever away. and here it is, my baby is now 5 and starting school soon! ok im drying my tears and moving on! this year for her birthday party sophia decided that she wanted to have a campout( hallelujah she got over the idea of a hannah montana or jonas brothers party! yuk!) and a pool party. and while yes you may be thinking these things DO NOT really go together this is what sophia wanted and so this is what she got(hey i was willing to do anything if it meant no hannah montana or jonas brothers!!). it was one of the most stressful party planning experiences EVER! it was the first really hot week of the summer and i had to clean my house and backyard top to bottom with no ac, i was moving salons this week, and i had a wedding to do at the del the afternoon of the party! busy week! even though this was probably the worst time to be planning a party, i think it turned out really well. i actually really liked the whole "campout" theme and thought it was a cute idea. we had a lot of fun and sophia told me this was her favorite party EVER! of course she has only had 5 and maybe only remembers 2 of them! shes already planning what she wants to do for her party NEXT year and is already starting her guest list. looks like we'll have this well planned out in advance for next year!!
