She’s full of big ideas and big emotions. She speaks thoughtfully, with the vocabulary of someone older. She is beautiful. She has an incredibly big heart for other people who are hurting.  She loves to talk about history. She is able to get creative with any scrap of paper, twine, or junk she is given. She has a competitive fire for athletics. She is social and never afraid to raise her hand with a question, or an answer. She is dramatic, (sometimes over-dramatic).  She is a loyal and forgiving friend.

She is so very loved and is affectionately known as “Sissy” to our family.

And now, she is eight!

 Q&A with Lily:

What do you want to be when you grow up?  An Artist, an Actress, an Author or an Athlete. Or maybe an Illustrator.

What is your favorite thing about school?   Art, and Math.

What are you really good at?  Sketching, and talking in a british accent.

What is your favorite thing about yourself?   I’m really, really smart. I like my hair and freckles, I’m kind (sideways glance to her brother and sister )…to most people, besides my sister and brother.

What is something you dream about? Going to the moon.
