Your 6th year of life has really been fantastic. It’s been a lot of fun to see you gaining such independence. It’s also been fun to see your physical changes. Those long skinny legs ( I am not sure where those came from), all the missing teeth and even the changes in your face. You are morphing into such a beautiful young lady. Your first name means Eternally Beautiful. Your dad and I choose Amara because it was unique and we just liked the sound of it. Of course I agreed with the meaning as soon as I first laid eyes on you. That was before I knew how beautiful you were on the inside. I still think Amara fits you to this day even if meant something else!
First grade has been just what you needed. You have a great teacher that knew you in kindergarten; she was your reading specialist. She knows exactly how you learn and that has been a major help. You want to be everyone’s friend, even to the kids that are “trouble makers” or not that nice in return. I think that you think you can help them! You love to help! Your brother is still your #1 fan.
Running, fishing and dancing are three of your favorite activities. You are quite good at all of them too. Oh, and you still walk around with your nose in a book every chance you get. No complaints here. You love crafts, singing, fashion and trying new foods. Your favorite appetizer is calamari – the more tentacles the better! You are such a great example of a daughter and friend. You have a great sense of self. A great sense of humor with a touch of sarcasm ( I know exactly where that comes from…oops!)
