Marlee ripped her dress at Jace’s soccer practice on Friday. She got herself stuck under a chain-link-fence as she tried to make a quick soccer field get-a-way. Her dress was the only injury, thankfully. But I tell you what: that chicka is a monkey!
One of my absolute favorite of all of my favorite parts of mothering is watching my children’s personalities grow, develop and change. Each of them so different than the other, yet having bits and pieces of familiar traits that are shared among all three. In another life I am destined to be an anthropologist – but for now I study my children.
And then Marlee. Marlee is our monkey. She makes us laugh, is a bit of a showoff and loves to be our families little center of attention. Although still a bit reserved when around people she doesn’t know – proving that she definitely belongs among our children – she tends to be more comfortable in larger groups that either of her siblings. She idolizes her big brother and sister, but is also fully aware that she has them wrapped around her little, baby finger. She loves babies, cars, books and coloring. She climbs anything and everything, jumps on the trampoline like a pro and can kick a soccer ball across the yard and into the net. I always find her dancing on the dining table or standing on the back of the couch or sitting all the way on top of the little play kitchen. She’s constantly bruised, banged and goose-egged, but rebounds quickly. She wrestles Jace like she’s just his size and squawks at ridiculous levels just because it’s funny. She’s got spice.
I am so glad God blessed me with them, and all of the little things that make them who they are. They make my life so much fun.

THE VERY END!
Yea! that I took a [picture a day] all summer long.
Not yea that [summers over].
Just in case you needed clarification.
But summer is over still the same.
And life just keeps on keeping on.
And someday I am going to write some actual words on this blog and tell you all about it.
I've sorta missed writing actual words.
happy September, happy end of summer, happy start of school, happy day!!
