This is the year in which I have sighed and said "Oh Celia" many times. I love my oldest so much and she has a sweet heart but she is beginning to get the teenage attitude of life's not fair and why do my parents get to tell me what to do. And I get it, I remember that struggle. I have told her that we are in this together and we need to figure it out. I am not writing this to poke at you Celia, it is a memory of what was going on at this age.
Audrey and Celia continues to be so close and they love to play with each other. They argue between the hours of 7:15 and 8:15 am, weekdays only (that would be from breakfast to when it is time to leave and there father gets to miss that fun part of the day)
She is smart and continues to do so well in school. Celia loves to read and is still obsessed with all things Rick Riordan.
She loves to sing,craft, draw, write, play with legos, and play dollhouse still which is Audrey's favorite thing to do with her sister. I thank her in my head a million times for still hanging onto that little girl part of her. Because when she is 17, believe me I will look back and think that age 11 was such a little girl. I think in all honest that Celia understands not to rush this growing up thing and I love her for that.
She had an amazing summer swim season and so we are testing out winter swimming. A month in and she is enjoying it. But she also made honors chorus (only 10, 5th graders make it) and she has church choir on Wednesdays so we are really busy. We are trying for 3 swim practices a week when she really should be going 4 or 5 days but luckily we picked a laid back team. The practices for her are now 90 min long which seems so long but she is enjoying it!
I am enjoying being able to do more with Celia. She actually did a 5k with my Mom this weekend and it was fun for both of them. I love getting to know her a little more each year.
