no, this isn't a post about presidents. this is a post about my wonderful brother and sister. really, it's a brag post. sorry not sorry. and yes, that picture is from one halloween when i was a bride, my brother was a cowboy and my sister was a sunflower. it's one of my favorites.
carter, my 18-year old brother, is the genius boy. he's incredibly smart. we always joke that he's sheldon from "the big bang theory", which is hilarious but only half true, cuz he's much more delightful than sheldon. but he is very smart. he's going off to college in a few months and he will be a bronco at cal poly pomona. we are all so very proud of him! he loves superhero movies, playing guitar, writing code and working with computers (he will be majoring in computer science) freakin smarty. he has a lot of patience with me, the big sister who loves to constantly smother and annoy him. he balances our family out; the serious, focused, quiet genius.
also, ever since he saw "the breakfast club" he has been rocking that jean jacket. i hope he never stops.
kennedy, my 15-year old sister (who i always refer to as baby kenna) is the on-stage talent. she sings, acts and dances all incredibly well. i am always amazed by her talent. she is currently up in sacramento working on a new musical called "generation me" that will tour this summer to various fringe festivals. it's weird that my baby sister has been gone for about 6 weeks but i know she is honing her skills and is becoming an even better actress because of it. she is very driven and goal-oriented (we both have that in common. probably how we manage to get along.) but she is still bubbly and full of fun. we always joke that i'm the monica, mom is the rachel and kenna is the phoebe. it's too accurate.
also, she dyed her hair this crazy red color for her show and it's just the coolest, most emma stone thing ever.
i'm thankful for my siblings. they significantly shaped who i am today. my protective, responsible, authoritative, leadership side all came from being the big sister to two great younger siblings. i can always count on carter to give me a reality check and kenna will always be my wingman.
happy national sibling day!
