Her festivities began at school on Friday. I made cupcakes (or as Ruslana calls them "little cakes") and brought them, along with juice, to her classroom. The children gathered around her and sang Happy Birthday. This was a pretty epic moment because it was the first time anyone had ever sung Happy Birthday to her.
Her teachers gave her cards and candy. She was so excited to receive them. I'm so thankful for her sweet teachers.
