Our Four & The Four

Sometimes my mom teases me about how I don't post about the "big kids" as much. It's not MY fault they don't say ridiculously funny things like they did when they were little-bitty. Like this little gem. Joe doesn't stall when he goes to bed. And they just don't do things like this anymore!

Perfect example: Which picture is funnier?



Clearly, teenagers are no fun.

Also, this is what happened the first time I tried to take Kaity's picture!
Photo Bomb!
However, despite being no fun, Kaity has been hard at work on her very own novel! She accepted the NaNoWriMo challenge to finish a novel in the month of November. Her goal for National Novel Writing Month was 35,000 words and to write her adventure novel, The Four. She met, and exceeded, her goal! From the author, a summary of The Four:
"Four kids discover that their parents are formerly superheroes and set out to find the source of their parents' power (four magic crystals) and inherit the power in order to stop a rising super villain threat, Lord Angstrom."
We're so proud of her accomplishment! It took a lot of hard work and sacrifice to complete her goal and she did an amazing job! I think Kaity would agree that it couldn't have been done without the support of her parents, who read her story aloud using funny accents (hillbilly, posh Briton, etc.) in order to encourage Kaity in her work.
