Officially 6

The parks throughout Belgium are beautiful.
Not only are they kept up nicely, but they offer a wide variety of activities,
to include (and are not limited to) biking, swimming, hiking, jogging,
playgrounds, petting zoos and learning centers.
One of our favorite parks nearby is Kesslo- Lo.
There, Stella watched from the shoreline of a lake last year, as Addie rode the electric boats.
You have to be at least 6 years old to ride.
Stella waited patiently and, as if trying to encourage herself along,
said "That's ok. I'll be 6 soon and then I can drive the boats too."

Good things come to those who wait. Stella finally got her ride.
It might not have been all that it was cracked up to be
because she only drove for about 5 of the allotted 15 minutes before she pulled
into the dock (without incident or issue) and announced she was done.
I found that an encouraging sign, as she's constantly asking if driving the car is difficult.
She frequently says she'd like to grow up quickly so she can drive a car.
Perhaps we'll have to conquer the electric boats first.
Thank goodness I've got another 10 years to get my mind around the thought of Stella behind the wheel.
