Victoria is full of interesting statements lately:
— she has 9.5 boyfriends (?!)
— her brain is divided into sections: devilish, “angel-ish,” mechanical, tinkerer, “mud” (that’s the gardening part), and (primarily) sensible, meaning “wise and using good judgment”
— we were discussing her great-grandfather who worked in an auto factory making cars. “That must be why I’m so creative!!” she exclaimed, very excited by the idea.
— she wants her new nickname to be “Aroma Girl.” You can figure that one out yourself.
I was holding her hand today walking into the grocery store — I had just picked her up from a Spanish-language day camp, and it was just the two of us. Gosh, seven is a great age. Whatever mistakes I’ve made and will keep making, I am so glad for the extra time together we get from homeschooling.
