My awesome sister(s)

I have 5 awesome sisters. We each have our unique strengths and talents and I'm so glad each one is my sister. Today I am going to talk about one sister in particular--Shaunda--just younger than me (3rd from the left in this picture).

She has 5 kids ranging from 2 years to 9 years and is a great mom. She's very organized. School just ended and the kids were looking forward to long, sunny days outside, but due to bad weather yesterday they were cooped inside. She said she hadn't done anything but then started listing what she had done: taught one daughter to make bread, taught another daughter to mop the floor, made sure each kid had some brain time by reading or using flashcards, made cookies, and a lot more things that I already forgot. All this by 2:30 in the afternoon. As I said she was awesome and repeated back all she had done, she agreed "I am awesome!". Way to go Shaunda!
