A picture she  took

This is her

t

i was just thinking .   ..  We dont talk about out older children  very much on here unless its something  negitive . 

 i think its time we gave  them some  credit. !! 

  • My 12 year old  just made the basket ball  team.  Shes smaller then the  rest of the team so she works hard at it .  
  • she helps at home.  Makes dinner once a week , and  plays with her brother and siter and helps  me alot with them . 
  •  She has her favorite  college womens  soccer team shes  striving to be on .  She knows they dont  take  C  students so she studies hard to make the  A's.    
  •  Her  art and Spanish teacher have asked her to enroll  in the advance placment   classes for next year .
  • Her helpfulness and honesty  goes beyond  measure of the average 12 year old .  Almost too honest. 
  • shes very open and always willing to share  her thoughts and her day with  us.
  • Shes in girl scouts and loves to do community service projects.  Although she wont   clean her  room she will  clean the planet.
  • She grows her hair long just so she can donate it .

 i tell myself that shes 12 , and  she  will make mistakes someday .. then soemthing  happens and reminds me that shes is so  wonderful

Her troop  gave snacks of  cookies and candies  to the teachers . one teacher  is a dibetic  and she took her own money and bought him  sugar free candy  and apples and other things he can have.

I don't have older kids to say such nice things about, but I do hope I can have such a great long list when my boys are older! You must have done a lot of things right!

Here is my first born. Stubborn to no end. But hes very loving and affectionate.

He loves helping with his little sister and they have a great bond

he is in Kung-Fu

He wrote a letter to our mayor about a neighbor who leaves his dog outside (we are in PA)

He loves art and is in the art club at school
