She will start 7th grade in the fall and is a little nervous. We found out at the end of 6th grade, she had been invited to be part of AP(advanced placement) classes. She loves to read and is very astute at language arts. She is well above her grade level.
Here is a picture of Ashley with her sister Kristy on our last church trip to the Blue Ridge mountains in Virginia. Kristy is on the left and Ashley is on the right.

It has become sort of a tradition in our house for me to make the cakes. Except as the kids have gotten older some have wanted store bought cakes. While they are little, I would definitely prefer to make them though.
So there may be other posts today, but they are all going to center around Ashley and her big "12th" birthday. Everything from waking and breakfast to dinner and cake.
