This is my little Kendyl. She love Love LOVES painting her nails. She changes the colors constantly. It's so fun to watch her love being a girly-girl one minute and playing in the mud and acting like a dinosaur the next. She's learned to be free from her big sister who is whatever she wants to be as well.

I was thinking the other day about how I was when I was little. I loved dressing up and singing for pretend audiances and then the same day playing basketball with my brothers and their friends outside and taking off my shirt when I'd play like them. (Mind you- I was definitely under 8 years old- I thought that was the rule for playing basketball.) When I got older I loved sitting with my dad in the garage and feeling so important handing him different tools as we worked on cars (not knowing really what he was doing) and riding motorcycles in the foothills with him and my little sister on the weekends. All the while still loving to dress in cute clothes, being on dance teams, and thinking about boys and getting good grades and still playing other sports.

I like how girls can be girly-girly and tomboys at the same time. It's wonderful! It's great being a girl! LOVE IT!

I wouldn't have it any other way. I love that you and the girls love being girls, but aren't afraid to get dirty too. I think what you've done with the pictures is fanditliastic too!
