to an occasion for singing, dancing, and rejoicing -- a celebration.
just completed 7th grade at Hoggetowne
Middle School where she earned her first cord in Capoiera,
a Brazilian martial arts form performed to drums and music in
which the object is to *not* hit your sparring partner. Lunch
is also high on her list of favorite activities. She is a strong
reader and loves showing the world that she is intelligent, well-read,
and opinionated -- like her father. She is also remarkably stong-willed
and has a hard time keeping in mind that the is neither the teacher
nor the school principal.
life-long Barbie fan, these have nonetheless finally taken a second
place to unicorns and panda bears. She also likes butterflies,
fairies, and lying on her back in the bath tub with only her face
sticking out of the water and singing at the top of her lungs
.. (okay, she doesn't do that any more -- but she used to; and
it's one of my favorite memories).
likes animal movies and does not lke scary movies. She also likes
playing on her computer, email, and web surfing. One of her favorite
sites is Panda
is a fan of chicken lo mein and macaroni and cheese (the real
kind; not Kraft!), as well as corn dogs, corn, and peanut butter
has a mind-bogglingly rambunctions Boston Terrier named Stacy
(can dogs be ADHD, emphasis on the hyper?), and wants more fish,
a hamster, some birds ... She wants to be a veterinarian when
she grows up.
