Karis has learned so much this year. A friend told me that at four the baby goes away forever. It's true.
Right now she is on the couch reading to herself.
She asks me to say words she can write out.
She unloads the dishwasher and most of the dishes go in their right places.
She cleans her room, makes my bed at times, vacuums, and can clean windows.
She helps her aunties cook, loves cooking shows, and wants to be a chef.
This year she mastered the overhead ladder.
Loves to climb trees, as you can tell by these pictures. The Rivers kids taught her how to go higher. Mommy is not sure what she thinks about this.
And of course, learning to ride without the training wheels. She has two bikes, but this is my favorite. One of my nicknames for her is Strawberry Shortcake. A neighbor was getting rid of their vintage bikes and we got the Strawberry Shortcake one. It works out great because now we have one and one is up at my mom and dad's.
Above all, she is a tenderhearted little girl who loves her family and the Lord. We are blessed to have our fiery little redhead.
