Personalities

Keith takes the girls to school every morning.  He rarely posts on facebook but he took the time to post this:

Two comments, two personalities perfectly represented:

Carli: "Are we on time? I need to get my morning work done so that I can read another chapter book."

Ava: "I need to get mine done so...eh, maybe not."


Ava has been fighting off a weak virus all last week but got to go back to school on Monday.  We asked Ava if everyone was glad to see her back at school and she replied, "Yep, I was especially happy to see me back at school today, I sure missed me being there." Right, that's what we meant...

And finally, This kid...if you knew her you'd know this shirt is being sarcastic. Maybe is the first born gene or just a strong willed child gene...but wow she can push some buttons!! She absolutely refuses to blow her nose and drives me nuts! She sees herself as the 3rd adult in the house, and thus sees nothing wrong with telling her siblings what and how to do things (even blowing their noses!). She has an insane amount of determination to get something done, but only if she wants to do it. If it's someone else's idea, well, don't expect her to be determined to do it well or right the first time...that is until she finds a different, more difficult way to achieve said task then she'll work hard to get it done. She strives for perfection at new things and is sorely disappointed when she's not perfect the first time. However, perfection is not a big deal for such menial task of cleaning, homework or putting away laundry. But making a butterfly from scrap paper with working wings, yep that's got to be perfect! This kid...she gives me gray hairs and the sweetest kisses.

**She told me this is how leaders take good pictures. So, you know, they can see where they are going while they lead!**
