Kate at 18 months.
This picture was taken the day before she bit her tongue in half. She has a nice scar she'll show you if you ask....
She loved "Tellytubbies" and "Katie and Orbie."
She would put colored socks on her hands...they were her "wings" so she could fly.
Five years old. I was her Kindergarten classroom helper. She would hold my hand when we walked to school.
She was in dancing and loved her first grade teacher.
In second grade...she loved going fishing with her dad. Still does.
Smart as a whip, loved school, still dancing.
In fourth grade, she took second place in the school spelling bee.
Still in fourth grade, with the most beautiful hair on the planet.
She wanted her hair trimmed, so I trimmed it, but it was crooked, so I trimmed it a little more, and it was still crooked, so I trimmed it a little more. By the time we were done, I had cut about 14 inches off, and we were both in tears. I felt so bad that I went upstairs into the bathroom and cut my hair in solidarity. That was a bad day.
Sixth grade, smart and beautiful.
