This has always been our motto when it comes to Kate. Seems like sometimes the younger kids get the short straw when it comes to getting dragged around to older sibling activities or to even getting activities of their own. So Allen and I decided long ago that we were going to finish strong with Kate.
Of course it was never a worry with Kate. That girl has always been good at advocating for herself! Not only that, she has ALWAYS chosen the road less traveled. Did her sisters do it? If they did then Kate was going to do something else! I used to worry that Jill and Ellie were excluding Kate in their games and activities until I realized Kate was excluding herself because she WANTS to be different!
So, even though we had this motto to make sure our family caboose got all the benefits her sisters did it was totally unnecessary because this girl is so strong she is going to finish however she darn well wants to!
I dragged Kate to a new spot for senior pictures and she put up with a lot of trekking around. Turned out to be TOTALLY worth it because she is thrilled with her pictures and so am I! Can’t wait to go back to Discovery Park for more sessions!
Here are my favorites…
