Ms. Quality Time

Ms. Quality Time is my oldest. She is a voracious reader who loves her sisters and brother, but values her alone time as well. She is nine years old in this picture, but she is 15 now.  She feels very deeply, and has a tremendous sense of justice.  She is much like her mother and her grandfather in that she has many interests and wants to learn what she can about everything!  However, once she feels she's mastered something, her interest in it wanes.  I've noticed this in all things except books.  She can never get enough books!  Of course, she came by that honestly as well.  ;)

She began public school at the beginning of 9th grade.  She is doing very well there, and has no desire to return to homeschool.  Like Smiley, she is struggling with some emotional things as well.  I would call is depression, but she says it's not.  We're navigating that with the Lord's help.  She is on the Scholar's Bowl at school, and helps with the marching band.  She has recently decided to learn to crochet so she can make hats for her friends at school for Christmas.
