From Oldest to Youngest:
Scarlett: The leader and guide. Everyone looks up to her. She is a dreamer, a lover, an empath.
Emmett: The backseat driver, but the best snuggler.
Lyle: The independent adventurer.
Ollie Jack: He is all-knowing. (And the comedian)
Veda Ruth: The baby.
Together we are the MacDonald Tribe. We learn together and play together. These children support one another, bicker and fight – but always apologize. Each child is so passionately different, but still so rooted to this family that my heart sings as I watch them interact.
We have easy days, hard days, and are basically a traveling circus, but as Scarlett says:
We have made it this far, we can make it even farther.
