She loved learning and reading! My sweetie still thinks it’s absolutely hilarious that once he had to ground her from reading for not cleaning her room. She was shy and sweet in elementary school, always winning the citizenship and honors awards. She has an incredible mind (she gets it from her dad, not me) that soaks up everything. Then she can spit out random, useless facts at just the appropriate moment. I don’t think she ever forgets anything.
When she was in 6th grade, she had a huge turning point in her life. The sixth graders always put on a Shakespeare play as part of their curriculum, and that particular year they had chosen the Taming of the Shrew. The Drama Queen was so excited! She loved Shakespeare and had already memorized several long speeches. She could even do the English accent (not required for the audition, but extremely cool anyway).

She is an amazing person! We love having her around and giving her a chance to get to know some of her little siblings better. It’s so fun to watch a movie or play with her because she laughs right out loud. She knows how to be a good audience because she has spent time in front of one. I’ve been looking and I’ve found a place for her to audition this weekend for a community production of Little Women. I can hardly wait to see her on stage again. In the meantime, she can just be center stage at our house when she celebrates her 22nd birthday today. Happy birthday, Drama Queen. You’ve filled our lives with love and laughter. Love, Mom
