A word on my beautiful family (one is missing in this picture).
I’ll go from left to right. On the far left, my Lego freak of a brother Moses David Augustus. He is, as of January 2013, 12 years old, and an engineering genius, at least from my perspective. He spends most of his time building Legos or drawing. He is the second oldest in the family.
Next, I am sitting with George Sequoia on my lap. I, Jada Rose Serene, am the oldest, at 13 (almost 14), and, as I already stated, I like to read, write, draw, and listen to music. George is 1 and 1/2 and he likes to wreak havoc on everything in his reach. He also likes our cats.
Third from the left is Elias James Shalom. He likes mountains, knives, guns, hunting, etc., etc. He likes to build Legos, too, and he likes to play with action figures with Moses.
On the far right is Justice Lily May. She is 4, and she is a princess. It’s new to my parents, because it’s not a phase I ever went through. she likes pink, dollies, princesses, dresses, fairytales…pretty much anything related to princesses.
Not included in the picture is Wolfgang Lewis. He was born on January 17th, 2013. So far, he hasn’t shown any preference for one thing or another, but I have been monitoring him carefully for any signs of favoritism. He eats, sleeps, urinates, and expels feces from his body.
Next, my parents, Roger and Emerald.
My dad Roger works on a wind farm as a windmill tech, and in his spare time he does a lot of stuff. We purchased the house we are currently living in when it was in terrible shape, and we did manage to fix it up some before we moved in, but it still needs some work, and he does that.
My mom Emerald has a blog at emeraldjoy.wordpress.com. In it she documents our Morocco trip, so if my travels interest you at all, look up her blog. She is a stay-at-home mom, and spends most of her time taking care of us kids. For the last few weeks she’s been sort of out-of-comission, though, because with Wolfgang she had her first-ever c-section.
I have some amazing extended family, too. I have two full sets of grandparents, and a whole slew of second-cousisns and whatnot (my mom has too many first-cousins). I also have two aunts, three uncles, and a ton of great- aunts and uncles.
