This is the latest on Kaitlyn from 16.5-16.75 years old.
Kaitlyn is still into trying new foods. She has been into making bagels lately, which has been a very yummy addition to our diet!
She is also still acting a lot like an oldest child since Brayden has moved out. She has been very responsible and taking on big goals. Brayden has asked “Who are you?” when we have talked to him on the phone each week and she tells him about waking up at 4:30 AM to get the day going.
An adventure with driving during this time period has been the snow. This is her first winter with a driver’s license. We have had a lot of snow and roads have been sketchy. It does make her nervous at times, but she has done well and has remembered the teaching she got in driver’s ed for staying safe on slippery roads.
School is good. She has taken on a very intense load this trimester at school. She has taken a full load–even taking a college course during what is the school’s “study hall” hour, so she has a lot of homework at all times.
A fun thing with school during this time period has been a couple of different school dances. There as been a girls’ choice and a boys’ choice dance.
She is currently playing soccer with her club team and taking piano lessons.
She went to a tournament with her team to San Diego in November and had fun there.
She did a concert that was just her singing her original songs in the beginning of December. She did a great job. We then did a recording session in January where she recorded most of those songs. That was a fun experience.
For work she has been grooming dogs. She doesn’t advertise but word of mouth and repeat customers keep her busy!
She spent time volunteering by running the lights for the middle school musical and is currently being a choreographer at the elementary school musical. I have been very impressed with how well she handles the kids at the elementary. There are some difficult children (difficult in various ways) and she handles them really well. She keeps it fun but also keeps them focused.
