I cannot believe our little girl is 5! She was so excited to celebrate her special day, and she actually had 2 celebrations, one at school the day before vacation & another on her birthday in the mountains!
The amazing thing about Sophia's birthday, is that it usually falls somewhere around the feast before the fasting, and this year was perfect.
At school the kids were encouraged to wear "fancy dress" (costumes for the US folks), and we had her birthday celebration in the morning with all the kids dressed up. Nana & Alexandra were with us, and we all sang to her (without her getting embarrassed at all!!), and then Sophia walked Nana all around the classroom during recess... She was so proud to show off her work!
