Her birthday was in August, but we waited until school started to have a party. I knew she was apprehensive about starting a new school and I felt it would give her a chance to make friends with the girls in her class.
Four of the girls came, along with two neighbor girls and some family members. It was a peace-sign theme. That was fun to work with.
The cake was not fun. It kept crumbling. But eventually, I had something decent to show for my efforts.
