As many of you know, my six-year-old daughter, Allie, is the inspiration behind Crossing Arrows. It was her spirited taste and desire to wear boy clothes that led to the creation of Crossing Arrows. Although Allie is the face of Crossing Arrows, my 12-year-old, Grace, is a huge inspiration to me as well. She doesn’t get enough credit for all that ways she contributes to Crossing Arrows. She is my model, encourager and helps with a lot of the social media side of the business. So, let me introduce her.
Meet Grace Elizabeth Louise. Grace is the sweetest, most compassionate and giving girl I have ever met. Her wit and humor make me laugh EVERY.SINGLE.DAY! She is passionate about her academia and works diligently every day. She is a stud at soccer and on the volleyball court. Grace also plays viola and lights up any room she walks into. She has the most giving spirit of anyone I know. Can you tell I am super proud to be her mom?
One thing about Grace, she rarely ever gets in trouble. She has been the easiest child to raise. She hates to disappoint and makes parenting a pre-teen so fun and enjoyable. We truly laugh a lot. Here are just a few pics to prove that.
Grace’s favorite things in life include…dogs, soccer, volleyball, teaching herself gymnastics, working tirelessly on the trampoline to nail her front handspring, makeup, spending time with her friends and loving on her super awesome mom (okay so she may argue the super awesome part). Oh and let me not forget her favorite thing…taking selfies with a double chin. She sends me random double chin pics throughout the week. HILARIOUS!! She thinks it is hilarious and what I love about her, she posts them on her social media accounts. How funny is that? The boys love her and she could care less, she is who she is and doesn’t hesitate to share her silliness with everyone. I LOVE her lack of reservations…even at her age.
So, about a month ago Grace got her phone taken away for a bad choice she made when she was with her friends. A very innocent bad choice but I wanted to teach her a lesson, so no phone for a week.
After the second day of no phone, I received a string of images on my phone sent from the iPad at home that read: This is me without my phone. I hope you’re enjoying this cruelty.
So, here she is folks…Grace in all of her hilarious and witty glory! Isn’t she the coolest? I promise when she’s old enough to have a boyfriend, he will be shown these pics.
