11 Start of a new Decade 11

11... Every year you have a birthday shirt, usually designed by you (at least in the recent years). This year's shirt says "Start of a new DECADE" and has an 11 on the bottom corner

It's been a crazy busy year. You keep us on our toes with all that you do. You are always on the go and with friends. You've spent a lot of time with your dance friends, especially Mahli, Alessandra and Sofia. There have been lots of sleepovers at Emma's house (you even have a toothbrush there).

We are so thankful to friends and their parents that love you as much as we do. They are there to help when needed and jump in sometimes at the last minute. It really does take a village and we have an amazing one!

 Over the last year you've had some great achievements. You continue to make Principal's honor roll and you topped out the score for the ELA FSA. You got a cool certificate from the Governor for your hard work.
You continue to dance - alot. You are at the studio 4-5 days per week for a couple hours each day. You are in 7 group dances plus your solo this year. You've struggled a little with dance and the dynamics of being with the same people all the time. It's part of growing up and you are working through it.

The last couple months have been a little scary. You complained about your heart hurting so we went to the pediatrician. Then were referred to a cardiologist. After you described your symptoms, the doctor was pretty sure he knew what was going on. You've been on a heart monitor for the last 30 ish days. They are pretty sure you have Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). After you are done wearing the heart monitor, we will go back to the cardiologist to fine out next steps. I'm pretty sure I had the same thing about your age. Technology wasn't as good back when I was your age, so I was never diagnosed, but I did eventually out grown it for the most part. I occasionally still have an episode. Lulu had the same experience at about your age. Nothing points to it being linked to genetics, but my Grandpa also had an irregular heart beat (his skipped beats). From the research I've done, there are a couple ways to treat it with the most severe and last resort being heart surgery. We are hoping it doesn't get to that!

 You didn't want a big party for your birthday this year, so we went to an escape room with some of your friends. It was a video game room, which was perfect for you! You are definitely your father's child and love your gaming. Ya'll worked well together and with a little help from me and Ms. Vicky, were able to escape with just over 4 minutes left. We went to Cold Stone to get ice cream after and there were more friends from school there!
