Hadley's update:
- Hadley is 5 and in Kindergarten. She loves school and is doing great. She informed me that she is going to marry Owen (a boy in her class).

- she loves to sing and has been in a musical theatre class here in town. She sure is fun to watch on stage. She will likely go in dance again this year too.

- Hadley is a very particular and determined little girl. She likes to have rules and everything organized when she plays. She gets a little frustrated when her brothers don't follow her instructions, but is often quick to come up with a creative solution.

- she is afraid of a lot of things. Namely - cats, dogs, bad guys coming into our house, taking medicine, needles.....that's all I can think of at the moment. She says a lot of prayers so that she can be brave and stop thinking about scary things. Poor girl! - this actually reminds me a lot of myself as a kid

- she loves to make stuff with paper, glue, scissors, and whatever else she can find and wants to save ALL of her creations. She wants to be an artist when she grows up.

- she is in soccer and loves it, although she doesn't kick the ball much. She prefers to play defense and runs from side to side in line with the ball in case it comes back to her. I think she's just a little too nice and lets the other kids kick the ball before her.

- she is a funny kid and loves to tell jokes and make people laugh.

- Love this kid -

she was so scared to brush the horse - I was impressed with how brave she was being

Great smile at the end. I remember being very afraid of bugs when I was little...and I still am. And as for her crafts-maybe at the next family reunion, she should set up a craft stand like Brianne et al. did a few years back. We still have the craft we bought on our fridge. :) I would love to add a Hadley creation to the collection!
