Rebekah....our third child

Rebekah and William at Rain Forest Cafe

Rebekah oh' so silly!

Rebekah is 13 as of this past Monday. She and Amanda are 18 months apart. Rebekah only went to public school for kindergarten and has homeschooled since. She is now in 6th grade. Rebekah's smile shines like the sun and her positive attitude is a joy. She makes me laugh all the time, even when I'm wanting to get on to her. She loves a good joke and clowning around, she keeps us going! Rebekah is very loving and mother hen like to her brothers. When I was looking for pictures to post most of them have one of the boys in the picture with her. I'm going to have to work on that! Rebekah is really very domestic. She can sew, her 88 year old great-grandmother has been teaching her. She has made purses, doll clothes, dog bedding for the store kennels, and baby blankets. She is great at fixing hair. In the spring when it's recital time moms call on her for their daughters hair. One of her big loves is cooking. She is great in the kitchen, to the point she will pass me up. Most the time when I'm cooking I turn around and there she is. I'd have to say she makes half the dinner every night....that is a blessing!!!! Rebekah is great with her hands and her mind thinks outside the box. This has given her confidence in herself that she has never had, you see she and Amanda both have Dyslexia. School is so hard for them but, they each are very talented. Rebekah is active in church with choir, Awana, and youth group. Rebekah has been taking drama since September and really enjoys it. Starting February 29th she is going to be in the play Disney's High School Musical, it will run through March 9th. She doesn't have big part, she is a student. I think she is thrilled to be a part of this production. Rebekah will be a fantastic wife and mother but, I think.....the sky is the limit for her. I can't wait to see what path God takes her down.
