Let me tell you though, that there are a lot of good things to say about Kjeri. First of all, she is an awesome big sister. A little moody but that's to be expected from a teenager. She is always the littlest kids' favorite (when they're not scared to go near her...).
Kjeri is also a writer. I've only read a little of what she's written because she's self-consious (hmm, I've been slacking in teaching English apparently), but what I have read has been great. She's written a couple of books (novels) and she has read them all aloud to her younger sister, who loves them. She's saving up for a computer so she can get them typed up and start revising. I'm hoping to talk her into submitting them for publication eventually. If that doesn't happen, maybe I can get here to start her own blog...
There are a million more things I could say about her- she's gorgeous and smart and helpful (sometimes) and, funny and, and, and... But instead of going about her, I'll just share some photos:
|This one was a year or two ago but is one of my favorites. She seldom wears her glasses anymore...|
|An example of what a good big sister she is (eyeroll). The one in front is 4yo Josie and the one next to Kjeri is 6yo Miri.|
|Occasionally she lets me take her picture.|
|All of my kids with my Grandma DeGiorgio last Christmas. Clockwise from upper left. Josie, Kjeri, Emmy, Sarah, Miri, Grandma, Eli|
|Okay so this one is about 6 years old (she was 8), but it's another of my favorites. It's actually hanging on my living room wall.|
|Self-portrait. This is one of her favorites.|
|Showing off the huckleberries we picked that year. (No, we won't tell you where our spot is...)|
|Kjeri was in the delivery room when Josie was born. They've been really close ever since.|
