Wow, Kenzie is sixteen. Can you believe it? I was dreading this day. I thought for sure that she would be on a date the night of her birthday. But, thankfully she hasn't been on a date yet. She has been the kid in the family so ready to grow up. But a little slow to want to take on responsibilities. Hmmm, how does that work?
These are sixteen amazing qualities McKenzie has that make us all love her so very much.
1. She is the best nick-namer in the family. Let's see.....there's (Mom) Modge, Terg, tergie, tergula, modgula (Dad) Popsie. (Ty) ty-pie (Syd) Skidmore, Skiddle, Sydlee, Skidnee. (Brit) Britone, Britonia, Britney. (Landon) Landone (Brady) Brader-Rader.
2. She can come up with the best reasons to have to be driven to school.
3. She can avoid doing chores better than anyone in the family.
4. Her teachers always give her extensions on her homework, (they feel sorry for her) I'm sure that she looks so forlorn and neglected.
5. She has a good voice and doesn't know it.
6. Her sarcasm is at an advanced level.
7. She can spend longer in a shower, than anyone I know.
8. She has an infectious laugh. You can't help but laugh when you hear it.
9. She can go from a failing grade all semester to passing faster than anyone I know.
10. She loves her sister very much (no sarcasm). I love that my girls really like each other.
11. She can sleep the day away (actually that drives me crazy).
12. She can make the most boring things fun.
13. She's real. She has a real sense of reality and never "blows smoke".
14. She is very determined when she want something.
15. She is a beautiful girl, inside and out.
16. She is all girl. Always has been, always will be. PINK, should have been her middle name.We love McKenzie

The Artist

Bob Marley- She drew this for Ty.

Wow! School is out! I am sooo looking forward to summer. It's going to be busy, crazy, but fun. But, the best part is I don't have to nag about homework. Or get up at 7:00 every morning. I can sleep in.
I wanted to put up these pictures that Sydney did this year in art. They are really good. I just can't get over why some people get lots of talent and some people get no talent (like me).
