{ Eight IS Great }

Brooke 8 years old blog

Earlier in the year at church, the stake Primary put on a program for all the kids turning 8 this year. It’s a running tradition in our stake and I love what they title it-“Eight is Great”.  Our newest eight year old around these parts would have to agree.

Eight Great Things About Turning 8

  1. You get to be the first kid in your class at church to get baptized and become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
  2. You get to go on a shopping date with mommy all by yourself. No daddy, no siblings, no babies, just you-“The 8 is great” kid.
  3. You get to go to lots of stores and try on every pair of shoes you see and mommy lets you. You get to pick out a white fancy pair of seashell flip flops to buy.
  4. You get to pick out the perfect white baptism dress and white high-heely kind of shoes to go with it.
  5. You get a new set of scriptures that are your very own and a cool new scripture case to put them in.
  6. You get to go have your toes and fingernails painted at a nail salon.
  7. Your grandparents get to come visit you.
  8. You get to stay up 20 minutes later at night.

   8 1/2. You get your very own photo shoot with mommy….Okay, the “Was once 8 and it was great” mom-person just added that one. But it is one of my favorite parts of birthdays-getting to take pictures of my kids and see how much they have grown and changed in the past year. Here are 8 great pictures of our birthday girl.
