J - age 7

J is now 7 (as of Nov 28)... wow, I can't believe how fast this last year went. She's such a goof ball and so independent. She's a total tomboy. She loves her friends and, while she mostly likes to play with the boys, she really is friends with everyone.

She likes to read, write, do math & science - really anything that gets thrown at her. Two of the boys in her class this year are hearing impaired and she's learning sign language from the interpreter that is part of thier class. She really loves that she can sign and include these new friends into her life.

Her favorites are Pokemon, Angry Birds, bey-blades, legos, soccer and kick-ball.

She is progressing quickly in her piano lessons and is currently enjoying playing "O' Christmas Tree"

She does not like to sit still. She likes to be upside down - doing handstands and back bends over and over -- so much so that she bruised her heal and had to wear a boot for a couple weeks. Man she did not like that boot -- she wanted to run and play and it slowed her way down.

I don't know what this next year will bring, I'm sure there will be many adventures, lots of learning and some mishaps, I can't wait!
