Sierra is fortunate to be in a school where they believe in the benefits of music. She is playing the clarinet in the school band. When my family came to visit last summer, Sierra tried out their clarinet & really seemed to catch on quickly. She continues to 'catch on,' and plays quite well for a beginner! She likes to give mini concerts at home for us, playing her favorite songs.
Among Sierra's favorite activities is volleyball. This past fall was her 2nd year playing, and it's amazing to see how she grew in skills and confidence! Her team won a total of 3 medals - one 2nd place & two 1st place!! She was over-the-moon excited! All the girls played strong - even though those tournaments lasted as long as 7 hours! Robert & I aren't sports fans, but we sure got into it & enjoyed cheering her on!!
Sierra is an awesome kid - or, should I say, young lady. She's so kind, caring, and aware of those around her. She has such a heart for Jesus, and she never ceases to amaze me! Sierra enjoys reading her *pink & sparkle-y* Bible, and it melts me to see her reading it on her own. August 19, 2007, she turned her life over to Christ, being baptized in Him, and we are so proud to see her faith grow more & more.
She's also liking to read Nancy Drew books. She's been enjoying the old Nancy Drew series on DVD, too. And, of course, the Nancy Drew computer games! She's taking after her mom (& grandma!) when it comes to enjoying a good mystery! :)
As I've mentioned before, she still loves to dress up. Dress up for her now consists of 'real' high heels, dangly earrings, and make-up. Oh! - can't forget the long nails! She is the girliest girl I know, and I am so super blessed to be her mom.
