Independence

Sora is becoming fiercely independent these days and she's turning into a kid right before our eyes! She will spend hours in her room by herself talking to her grandparents on the iPad (which of course she can operate by herself to call them) when they have time to chat or read to her. She has started "helping" in the dining hall more and the first thing she wants to do when we go for a meal is to see if anyone needs help setting up, running the meal, or cleaning at the end. She is retaining more information too and during our home preschool time, she will often stop in mid thought to run and get a book that illustrates her point (we've been focusing on birds this week and there were times when she would run and get a birding book to show me a bird or egg that we were discussing). She is also turning into a little reader who is happy to read by herself. She even ordered by herself at the restaurant this morning which is something I've been trying to get her to do for a while! By doing so, she got way more food and spent more money than Kyle on her breakfast. Of course, all this independence comes with a strong 15 year old attitude, but we'll take what we can get!
