The end of this summer will mark Paige going into 3rd grade. Though just the next grade, I find it to be a leap in terms of maturity. I don't know if it's simply being able to be around her more (and less peer influence) or just a maturing age, but Paige is just plain enjoyable to be around. Rather talkative, yes, but enjoyable.
Today she made up this game for the boys to play (water whack). It's a sort of water balloon / pinata combo that had them busy for 2 hours this afternoon!
Last night, after coming in from my run (she was supposed to be in bed) I walked in the door panting from the heat. She came to the banister and asked if I was okay. I said I was just really hot. Her response: I think I established that. What 8-year old says that?
