Other random notes on Whit: At school, Whitney's class got changed to a combined 1st/2nd grade room earlier this year. Andrew and I had our hesitations about the effectiveness of the decision, but it has turned out to be great. Whit loves it. She continues to be our artist and spends much of her free time painting, folding paper into animals and hats, coloring, and drawing. She loves to help me in the kitchen. She just started her second season of cheerleading and has some friends on her squad. Just in the past few weeks, she and Brandon have found several things that they enjoy doing together. It has been so fun to see them PLAYING together instead of just fighting. (Not that the fighting has stopped altogether. Darn.) She used to be very affectionate and lately has been more standoffish with Andrew and I. Boo. We miss her hugs. She loves to laugh and make up jokes, especially around the dinner table.
