No Cape Required

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's.........

Super Sister!! 

When Isabella goes to school on Tuesday and Thursday, the little ones really miss her. As soon as she walks in the door, they bombard her with kisses and hugs. 

Stronger than a sumo wrestler

Faster than a speeding bullet for giving airplane rides. 

Able to play "duck, duck goose" 546,000 times in a row without getting cranky.

More patient than.....well, way more patient than me! 

A smile brighter than the sun. She makes me so proud. I want to be her when I grow up.

By the way, Superman was adopted too! 


  1. Just look at those happy little girls! What a great big sister to entertain them as she does. Isabella is a jewel!

  2. I want to be her too! What an awesome big sister! ALL of your kids are adorable & such characters but your older girls, oh my they just both look like such truly kind, loving, radiant spirits. And your son deserves his Angel wings for putting up with all those girls! Love your blog, it always cracks me up or makes me cry ... or both. Beautiful family you have.

  3. What a darling daughter you have! Sweet inside and out :-)

  4. Lovely! What an awesome big sister. I envy that ability to play the same game over and over and over. Does she do Go Fish (2 plus hours needed)? Will she travel to Pennsylvania? Pleeeaassse!

  5. This is such an awesome, lovely post. What a great big sister!!!

  6. She has such an amazing smile! A great big sister indeed, the little ones look like they have so much fun with her :)

  7. Love, love, love. Isn't it things like this that reminds us that God knows exactly what he's doing when he brings each child into a specific family. Your girls are so blessed to have each other.
