This blog is part one of a series of blogs aimed at taking an in depth look at each of our kids. We decided to put together some questions, some funny and some serious, that would give you an inside look at our children. Part one will be an interview with Bella, also known as Bella-Boo or Sissy. Bella is the caretaker of our children, the guardian, the “only I can talk to my brother that way” one. She is passionate, strong willed and sometimes fiery. She is very artistic and loves to draw pictures or little notes for all the people in our family. When she sets her mind to something she will not rest until it’s done. A while back Kyle’s Grandmother Nancy gave Bella a Rubik’s Cube and she has been obsessed with solving it ever since. Not long after she got it Kyle’s Aunt and Uncle were in town and their son Parker (who is 13) can solve a Rubik’s Cube in less than a minute. Bella was amazed and this increased her determination even more. She would work on it on the way to school in the morning, on the way home from school, her and Micah would look up videos on Youtube with tutorials on how to solve it. One night after she had gotten one side within one block of being the same color she was so excited thinking that if she could get that last block matched up that the whole cube would be solved. After we broke the news to her that one side could be solved without the whole cube being solved she got so upset, mad and crying thinking that she will never get it. But knowing her determination she will get the best of that Rubik’s Cube one day.
