Never Give Up!!!
One of the things that has amazed me with Sierra is her determination to master a skill that I (or others)think may be too difficult for her. She learned to tie her shoes at just 4 years of age, she mastered lanyern making at summer camp( which many 5th graders could not do), she cracks eggs for me better than I do, and today she finally was able to keep the hula hoop spinning around her. She had been trying, stopped for awhile and then found her hula hoop today and started over. I asked her how she finally did it and she said" Becasue I kept trying and I never gave up!" Mmmmm ...words to live by spoken by a 4 and a half year old!! I'll let the video speak for itself. An added story...today she found a package of balloons. She wanted David to blow one up and she wanted to blow one up. After David blew his up he turned to me and said "Mom, she'll never be able to do it" My answer?? "Don't ever tell your sister she won't be able to so something.!! As of last count she has blown up 10 balloons. The first one took her almost an hour!!
