sometimes sophie reminds me so much of myself. (scary sometimes...she's stubborn!) i loved to climb trees as a young girl and still love to swing on a tire swing hanging from a big, stong tree. (i actually had to stand "at the wall"once in second grade for climbing the small tree on our playground. caught by mrs. schroyer!) our home has a big shade tree in the front yard and sophie had to climb it the other day. she knows no fear.
