Maisie has had quite the sixth birthday as far as parties. Friday was her cupcake party with her USA Level 3 gymnastics team followed the next morning with another cupcake party with her TOPs team. A few hours after the TOPs party was her pottery painting party with a few girlfriends.
Then Sunday morning Maisie requested that we go out to celebrate with Dim Sum where she enjoyed her favorites, shark fin dumplings and shrimp & scallion dumplings.
After Dim Sum Maisie played at home with make-up and press-on nails which she received from Briana for her birthday. Just before dinnertime Steve, Anne, K & A came over to help us eat more of the zebra cake so Maisie had fun playing with her friends and opening more presents.
Monday at school Maisie celebrated her birthday with her 2nd grade class as well as the 4th grade class whom she had invited along to join the party. I had a very special science party planned and it turned out to be great fun.
Shane the Brain from Big Thinkers led a very fun science party and birthday girl Maisie was his special helper.
Next the children learned a little about the light spectrum first with their rainbow firework glasses a.k.a. holographic diffraction grating glasses.
Ewwwww…Maisie is very much a girly-girl.
Classmate “S” was more than happy to shoot off the rocket in Maisie’s place.
