Shaila perfers life to be straight, neat and tidy.

I perfer life to be curly and spontaneously unpredictable.

Recently we were laughing about how different and yet how similar we are - and this inspired the making of the following list of common opinions:

Chocolate is good but overrated

Tea sipping is soothing

Children should be homeschooled

Horses (idealistically) are the best mode of transportation

Music is the language of the soul

A girl never outgrows playing dress-up

Friends are gifts from God to be treasured

Desire to have snowy white hair in the winter season of life

Morning is the most productive time of day

Firm handshakes speak of strong character

Sighs and sound effects are more fluent then words

Make-up is to be avoided at all costs

Thrift stores are the places to shop

Purses are unnecessary - everything can fit in my bible case

Caves, stairwells, and bathrooms are the best places to sing

Backrubs cannot be given to hard

People are like music boxes

Wow...I think I agreed with mostly all of those.

What a lovely picture! and lovely insights. I'm so glad I'm blessed to know you, Caitlin. It was great to meet your sister too. :)

Oh Caitlin, how sweet! I love the description of life as "staight, neat, and tidy or curly and spontaneously unpredictable."

I agree with the majority of your observations, but if sighs and sound effects are indeed more fluent than words, it would be entirely logical to give them up to the superior substitute. I anticipate with much curiousity further discourse with you upon your return.

I must say that I can agree with most of those for my own life as well even though I am not a girl... although I never really have the urge to play "dress up", and I probably wouldn't carry a purse even if I did think it were useful.

Caitlin, how is Europe trip! The words that you write smile and it makes me wish that I could write that way. I have always been blessed by what you put on your blog, thanks. Have a great sabbath!

I'm glad that our silliness generated some smiles!

... Europe adventures will be posted as soon as I retrieve my pictures from Joels' computer!

Petra would agree with more of the above than I--particularly the Bible case bit.

My uncle Ted has always carried an odd looking purse.

I want snowy white hair too!

Nice. Having three sisters has been one the most beautiful gifts that God has given to me. I am blessed. And yes, I look forward to thrifting with my older sister:)
