Ruby turned six years old back in June, here she is with her Fancy Nancy Baby Doll, if you haven't read any of the Fancy Nancy books you are missing out, check one out at the library and find a child to read one to! As you can see above Ruby has a delightful smile and the charming personality to go along with it. She loves to do pretty much what everyone else is doing, such as waterskiing. Stephen decided he wanted to learn to ski this summer which Ruby echoed that she thought she'd like learn also. We weren't sure she'd be able to have the strength to get up and get going, but as you can see in the next photo determination won out. This is actually a photo of her second time up with the beginner skis (the bar is holding them together) she actually got up earlier in the summer without the bar. Hopefully she'll always keep and apply this kind of determination with her schooling. She does very well with her subjects and loves to read. One of her favorite times of the week is when we make a trip to the library. Art is also another favorite of her studies, unfortunately for Stephen, she is usually reminding me that we need to do art, a subject he does not share her enthusiasm for.
We are so blessed to have Ruby in our lives and pray she grows into a virtuous woman.
Prov. 31:10 A virtuous woman who can find? her worth is far above rubies.
