For many years now, my girls have done Good Deeds during the month of December. Each day they choose a slip of paper with a good deed, something nice to do for someone else. This year one of the Good Deeds was to pose for pictures for me. Both girls put this off until now, but today is the last day of Good Deeds so it was time for a photo shoot!
Although I didn't specify any particular clothing for our photo shoot, Katherine came out wearing dress clothes that she'd never combined before and had let her hair down and brushed it in a new style. She looked beautiful, impossibly old, but beautiful!
Katherine still loves to read (much to her mom's delight). She spends her computer time looking at classical music performances on youtube. She has spent the past two days drawing beautiful Christmas cards for people. She has become much more aware of the outside world, following politics, joining in political discussions, and forming well-thought opinions of her own. She's just a pretty cool kid!
