The girl is nine today. Wow.

She has a new Hogwarts-style robe from Alivan's and a tie like the ones in Prisoner of Azkaban instead of the wide-striped ones from the earlier movies.

She also has a new betta, named Paint, and he is truly lovely. And still alive this morning, which is also lovely.

But she's nine. Fourth grade. Reading The Hobbit. Wearing two-piece swimsuits with bikini bottoms. Eeeeeee!
