Big Dreams

Sis #2 is really into writing. So much so that on the last day of school, she received a writing award. In an effort to fuel the fire, I told her to start a blog (no, she does not know about mine). Figuring it would give her an outlet and the comments from friends and family would keep her motivated.

She's got a few posts in there and I'm not sure I ever realized what a big dreamer she is. Nine years old and full of answers, ideas and is determined not let anything get her down. I love it.

I've copied a few of her posts into the extended entry.

Who Doesn't Love Fashion
Tell me one girl who hates fashion? I mean c'mon everygirl is a fashion model! You just express it in your own sizziling style! Whats totaly in? The 80's and crocks! A perfect outfit is a big dark blue belt with a pokadoted white and blue dress with white leggings, ballarina slipers, and megga blue hopped earrings! With the summer feeling then of couse, that might be a little HOT! So, a cute pair of pink capries or gachos will do. And to "top" it off, how 'bout a cute light colored tank top (light blue, light purple, white, light orange, or light green)!!! Bathing suits? I will leave that to your mom(L.O.L)!! Personly I like a aqua or light colored bikini with a design.

("I will leave that to your mom" - that would be because she got in trouble for running around the neighborhood to her friend's houses in her bikini.)

Embarassing Moments
The most embarsing moment that has happened in my life is when I was singing in front of over 300 people, and I froze up and caught a real case of stage fright! Embarsing moments can be pretty embarssing. When you look back on it 'bout a week later, you will laugh. So go ahead, tell your moments!!! You will laugh sometime or another. It's okay to share them, no matter how humliating. So, just LOL with your BFFs!

Sis #1 left a comment on this one about splitting her pants during a 7th Grade dance. Sis #2 calls me and says, "I can't believe Daddy let Sis #1 go to a dance in 7th Grade." I told her that's what mommies are for, heh!

Over the Rainbow
Over the rainbow is where to be. When life gets rough, you feel like it is raining. The only way to get over the rainbow is to feel good about yourself. If you made a mistake, just say, "I tried my best! At least I tried. Oh well" To go over the rainbow when every one is teasing you, ignore every one or go along with them. Like if every calls you four eyes say, "You're right! I'm like a BUG!!!" And go along with them. If that doesn't work, just ignore them, and ask your friends to help out with your problem(s).

Summer Blues
Over the summer, some people get the summer blues. That's when no one is home and is on vacaitoin. Or your dad has to work and when you have Sleep Overs, you have to be in bed and watch movies, instead of doing your nails or doing crafts, and things like that. So, if your me... you always have a plan B, C, and sometimes D. Like, if every ones on vacation... use this time to catch up on movies, schoo, your drawling, and so much more. If you have to be in bed durning most of your sleepover time then... make a deal with your mom to play some games or tell stories, or just joke around. There is so much to do in the Summer time. Even with the Summer Blues!!!!!

Something Special
Do you want to do someting speical over the summer besides swimming and sleepovers and camps???? I know I might. You could do so much!!! You can make your own garden, of dreams. How? Choose a different plant for each dream. Lets say your dreams are to, look good, be a cook, meet Zac Efron, and someday be homecoming queen. So for the dream, Look Good, you can choose a flower that looks good. For be a cook, you could plant some fruit, berries, or honey suckels. To meet Zac, you could do a rose. And to be homecoming queen you could plant a buetiful flower!! You can have your own buessniess, like walking dogs. You can have a keyword. What is that? A keyword is something that people say in everyday life like, food, water, summer, freind, and so on. When some one says your keyword you do a cartwheel, or backbeend, or shout, or sing, or even dance!!! There is so much to do like start a book, start a club, make a fort, and soooo much more!!!

Your sister is your blogdaughter?

Doesn't this tree EVER branch? :-)

Guess she's too young to include in the official blogroll, though, huh?

I can't believe your 9 year old sister wrote these. It really is amazing how well she expresses herself.
