The Girl has always seemed to me more of a daredevil than her brother.  He's usually very cautious, making quite sure he will succeed at something before trying it.  But The Girl usually just jumps right in.  However, for two years now The Girl has foregone learning how to swim, feigning contentedness at playing on the Baja step of our pool.  She's wistfully watched The Boy swim like a fish, jumping in, having a great time.  He really did take to swimming like a fish.  So this has always been one area where their personalities were somewhat reversed.   

But then last Wednesday, The Girl decided today is the day, took off her swimming jacket, and waded in without fear.  And within the first hour she was doing cannonballs!

Now, THAT's my girl!

This week I went a little bit of a different direction on my sketch for Sketchy Thursdays than usual:

It's very clean and simple.  (Where's the misting?!!  Where's the skew?!! LOL!)

Come play along with us!  Check out what the DT made for your inspiration.

Today The Boy's been in school for a week.  He's doing great.  Thanks to everyone who kept their fingers crossed!!!

Have a great day!
