I felt a little silly asking Georgia's teachers, at her behest, if we could celebrate her half birthday. However, I can understand why if you had done this ceremony for your classmates approximately 66 times in two years without ever getting to be the center of attention yourself, you might begin to feel a little shafted as a five year old.
Short, sweet, simple, and Georgia was elated. (Although I have to laugh at how bored her friends look in these pictures!) I'm glad we did this because it will probably be the first and last time she ever gets to celebrate her August birthday at school.
