These three little monkies

Charis is reading at a 4th grade level. She absolutely loves Reading and Science. Anything to do with the Human Body, Reptiles, Animal Sea life. We couldn't move on the other day until we looked up information on Warm-blooded vs. Cold-blooded. Right now, she is learning about the Giant Squid, and she knows her stuff! She often likes to tell people that A squid's eye is as big as a human head, or the beak of the squid is so powerful that it can break a wooden oar in one snap! I often find her stopping on her walk to school in the morning, stooping down to look at the millipedes walking by.
The Books she is loving right now are called Step into Reading, Level 4 or 5 found at any bookstore . Anything from History, Biographies, or Science. 
She has this brain, her teacher says, that she can hear it once, and retain it forever. Charis loves books and Art. 

Hope has become our communicator, as mentioned before. She doesn't fear man, because she knows that it just takes a simple question to get what it is she is asking for. Last night, for example, I sent the girls over to our neighbors, Don and Marta, with a big piece of homemade pumpkin pie. They sang Don Happy Birthday, while it was raining. They told the girls that they would be sending some cookies over that they were about to make. So they hurried home. Just about 10 minutes later, I get a phone call from Marta, and says, 'We have Hopie here, she's helping us make some cookies." 
First of all, I didn't even know she had left, but that she took them up on their offer, unashamedly, and returned to help with those cookies they promised. She doesn't mess around. She always uses Please and Thank you, and seems to be the most effective for a response. Let's see what God molds this little girl into. Hopie loves animals in a more endearing way. Whereas Charis is the more scientific side, Hopie loves to read and learn facts about animal stories. Tools for play do, Barbies, and art stuff are also things she loves to occupy herself with.
Justice, is really into boy things. Cars, Boy Cartoons, or legos. You often hear him growling or roaring from afar, and just know to tell him, "Quiet Lions!"He loves to snuggle up like a puppy right next to you if there is an inch of room to share. He is a love bug. Many of the little girls often say, "Awwww" and ask for a hug from Buddy, because he is a good hugger. Little Budders, the Ladies' Man.
