What I love about Bagel!

Bagel is one of the most determined people I have ever met. She is strong willed and stubborn. I love it about her. She has a smile that can melt the hardest of hearts. Her love of life is infectious. She loves all of her siblings. She is my only left handed child (We are pretty sure Jumba is right handed). She is a quick thinker that doesn't like change. She reminds me of her dad in so many ways. She is an all around wonderful, beautiful young woman.

On Monday of this week she decided that it was time for her to ride her two wheel bike without help, so she just did it. Just like that. She tried and tried last year but always gave into to her fear of not being able to do it perfectly. Monday she just decided that it was time, end of story, and she just did it. There will be no stopping this young woman as she grows into adulthood. I can't wait to see all that God is forming her for.
Way to go girl, you know you could do it!

  1. Way to go, Bagel!

    Sometimes, our little ones know better than us when the right time is to accomplish a task. It's hard though...to allow them to operate on their own timetable rather than a predetermined one.

    That's what makes homeschooling so wonderful...you can meet each child's needs according to their own timetable...not some arbitrary timetable set by the state...sort of!

    Anyway, congrats to Bagel! BTW...when did she start showing left-hand dominance? I'm curious as a lefty! Benjamin has been left-hand dominant since birth...not even kidding. I know they say that you really can't determine hand dominance before age 3, but little man began batting at toys and reaching for objects in front of him with his left as soon as he was able. It's pretty much always been about his left hand! LOL


I love hearing your thoughts. Thank you for stopping by.
