After years trying to encourage Kelly to do math and science like a good Asian parent suppose to do, I am ready to let her enroll in an Art School for a after school art class. "A perfect day for me is to climb trees, draw and paint all day long, do some math, and read a little." I think the last two are for my sick. Well, art does run in both said of our family. Her personality is becoming stronger as she is getting older. It is hard to convince her to do things that she doesn't want to do. We have had many discussions about how to guide her toward a good path. With her personality, if she goes down to a wrong path, we know we wouldn't be able to pull her back. A lot people tell me that a strong-willed child is a blessing when they are older, that if we can guide her to the right direction. She is very creative and she loves art. Hopefully she will enjoy the class and create some beautiful work. I know she will. Can you tell by the look of that body language, she is a strong-willed child? Here is Kelly's little sister who loves to do everything Kelly does. Sometimes I feel guilty that we often design her after school activities after her sister to reduce driving around. But, she is just happy to do whatever her sister is doing. They are so different in so many ways. Kelly is smart and fast, but gets bored so quickly. It is hard to challenge her all the times. Allison is always concentrated and persistence. Because of that, we know she will be OK. We also enrolled her in a different art class. Not always the fastest, but always the one that will keep on tasks. She worries if she is good enough to take the class. I told her that her secret weapon is her focus and persistence. She can go very far with those good qualities. She smiled and said, "Kelly is very fast, but it always takes her longer to finish something because she always got distracted." The competition between two sisters!
