11 years ago today, Kim and I were given this gift of our first daughter to raise, and boy were we ever terrified. 11 years later I reflect on how some of the things we’ve done (so far) as parents. Some things good and some bad, but all with God as our focus and that’s what matters the most. So far, I think we have done OK.
Now that she’s going to begin Middle School, I thought it was about time to let you know a little bit about her.
Here are 11 questions I asked her that show the awesomeness and beauty that is, “Kiersten”
Me: Tell me about yourself
Kiersten: I have 2 siblings, Madi and Jack. During the weekdays, you can find me at my parents’ friends’ house, but on the weekends, you could find me at the pool or at my house sleeping.
Me: Who is your favorite superhero?
Kiersten: My favorite superhero is Spider Man because I think his webs are awesome.
Me: What are your hobbies?
Kiersten: My hobbies are playing soccer and reading. I like to read fiction books.
Me: Who is your favorite author?
Kiersten: I don’t really have a favorite author. I like all authors but the last book I read was No Place Like Holmes by Jason Lethcoe. The book was very interesting, and I enjoyed it very much.
Me: If you could ‘wish’ anything for your birthday, what would it be?
Kiersten: I would wish for a laptop, specifically a mac.
Me: What worries you?
Kiersten: What I worry about the most is losing everything I have, like my family.
Me: What do you love most about God?
Kiersten: The thing I love most about God is that he’s always there.
Me: Where do you want to go to college?
Kiersten: If I don’t get a scholarship, I would like to go to a community college to save some money. Then, I will go to a University. If I get a scholarship, then I will just go straight to the University, like Harvard or UGA.
Kiersten: I want to be a pediatrician.
Me: Who do you want to be like when you grow up?
Kiersten: I would like to be like my parents.
Me: Now that you are about to be in Middle School, if a boy asks you out on a date, what would you say?
Me: But what if you really want to go out with this boy?
Kiersten: I would make him ask you, and if he was too scared to ask then I would say no.
There you have it, our oldest of 3 (and soon to be 4). She’s an intelligent little lady with a heart for children, walking in The Light knowing God is with her every step of the way. She loves Spidey’s webs ’cause they’re awesome, but would say no to a date with him if he’s too chicken to ask her father’s permission.
If you could shoot webs through your hands, what would be the first thing you would do?
Since she loves to read, any book recommendations?
