This entry I will devote to introducing our three daughters...
First of all, we had a special visitor to our home yesterday, our middle child, Olivia's, 3rd grade teacher. She left with me a form to fill out about Olivia. We are suppose to list 5 words that best describe her. I thought this would be a great way for me to introduce all our daughters:
Our oldest, Lauren, is 12. She is 1. musically talented, 2. ambitious, 3. intelligent, 4. methodical and 5. an avid reader. Lauren's current passions include the violin and reading the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. This year she will be venturing off to the local, public Jr High, which will be quite a change from the small private school she has been attending since Pre School. However, we have prepared her and we are confident that she will adjust well to her new school.
Olivia is our middle child and she is 9. She is 1. creative, 2. fun, 3. compassionate, 4. responsible and 5. personable. Just to give you an example of her compassion .... her and her younger sister Avery, pooled all their money together and gave it to my husband and I for the adoption. That moment brought tears to our eyes. She also created a container for loose change and labeled it "for adopshun!" (her spelling) and placed it on the kitchen counter for anyone to contribute.
Our youngest daughter, Avery is 5. She is 1. lovable, 2. happy, 3. active, 4. inquisitive and 5. social. She is very easy going and always has a smile on her face. She has no fears of starting K this year and looks forward to meeting new friends. She also loves the attention she receives from her sisters' older friends!
Steve and I embrace all their differences and encourage the positive in their personalities. We have been so blessed with the fun dynamics each girl brings to our family. Most importantly, however, all three girls share with Steve and I a love for the Lord.
