About the Children
girl, 7 - She likes to spend time by herself. She can draw or play legos for hours. She loves coloring. She's very creative and bright. She's a bit more introverted. She has trouble when she gets frustrated with her sisters she doesn't always express herself. She might hit her sister or throw something and then she'll climb into bed. We'll talk to her and say you don't hit your sister. She can be difficult to navigate at times so someone understanding and patient for her is best. While she sometimes has trouble expressing herself, she follows all the rules. She's the typical first child. She is in a yoga class and soon she's going to do an after school ice skating class. girl, almost 7- She's super sporty and she's up for anything. She loves to help and is very sweet. She likes to play any sport. She likes to read to people, too. girl, 4 1/2 - She just started kindergarten. She's really sweet, but has her moments as she is entering some of her more formative years. She's figuring out her place in the family as one of the middle children and the world. She likes soccer and loves to swim. girl, 2 - You'd think she's 10 the way she walks around the house. She started preschool this year and does a half day. She goes to bed between 6 and 7 PM. She has just one after school activity. With 4 girls, there is a lot of testing boundaries, some independence, and whole lot of activity!
