Blogging Challenge – Day 4: About My Family

Blogging Challenge – Day 4: About My Family

My siblings and I all look alike. I can really only see the resemblance through pictures, but man, when we’re out and about, we always get comments about how we look the same, hahaha!

So, let’s jump right into learning about who everyone is, as well as a little bit about our wonderful parents. ❀

You can read about what this blogging challenge is here.

About My Family

I am the oldest child, which is honestly pretty cool! I can be (and usually am!) the good influence, the leader, the future chauffeur of all their first dates … HAHAHA! Nah, I’m going to be an awesome big sis. If I ever do any chauffeuring (and I probably will), I’m gonna be a great one and not embarrassing at all. I think.

So anyway, I am seventeen and the mature (hehe) teenager around here. I love the arts, being creative, spending time with my family, competing in games, baking new treats, and having quiet time with the Lord.

Joshua is thirteen – that’s four years younger than me. When we were little, we were inseparable, but personality differences have drawn us apart in more recent years. He has been in my prayers often, and I am so thankful that we’re beginning to be closer again. ❀ He loves being outside, riding skateboards and bikes and scooters, gaming on a variety of devices (PC, tablet, Wii), experimenting with science, and joking around with all of us. (Watch out for his pranks!)

That picture is from when Joshua and I were about the same age that Samuel and Elizabeth are now!

Samuel is five; I was eleven and Joshua was seven when he was born! The age difference is wild, but I absolutely love it. Because I’m a great bit older, I have to really search to find something that interests both of us, but when I do, I love getting to play games and do activities with him. He loves being silly, playing games, watching kid movies and TV shows, and spending time with us – especially baby Elizabeth!

That brings me to the last kid around here, and she’s the most adorable little munchkin you shall ever meet, I dare say. Elizabeth is ten months old, and I couldn’t ask for a sweeter sister. I love being with her and taking care of her, and it brings me joy to know that she is nearly as content with me as she is with our mom. ❀

I took that photo yesterday morning after Elizabeth had just gotten up, and Samuel was playing Minecraft while sitting next to her. Isn’t she sweet?!

Now, on to my mom. Many of you have heard of her blog, Living Lighter in Atlanta, but if you have never visited it, it would bless me if you did! She is not only my mother, but also my best friend – not to mention my teacher! Even if we weren’t related, I’d still want to be her friend. πŸ™‚ I can’t express to all of you how thankful I am for her! She is always so kind and loving to me, even though she’s constantly juggling taking care of all of us andΒ keeping a clean house. I admire her greatly πŸ™‚ ❀

My dad, who I for some reason don’t write about very much on here, is the best dad I could ever ask or pray for. He loves all of us to pieces, has a great sense of humor, is hardworking, loves a good competitive game, and is very interested in classic cars and how vehicles work. I love him so much. ❀

So, that’s it for us! If you have any more questions about any of us, make sure to leave them in the comments below!

Can you tell us about YOUR family?

  1. I totally agree with you on what you said about being the eldest because I am the eldest in my family and I feel like the leader. Haha! You have a wonderful family, dear. Thank you for sharing them with us.

  2. I have 4 brothers. As early as I can remember, the oldest 3 had already moved out, but Luke, the youngest of them, and I grew up together. I am 17, and he is, gosh, 19 now I guess. That makes me kinda sad. Anyway, the other 3 are Mathew, Josh, and Ryan, and I love them all to bits. Luke has a blog, which he hardly ever writes in any more, but it’s worth looking through the archives. He’s written some really beautiful stuff in there.

  3. They are all adorable, and I definitely can see the similarities. It’s so cool that your mom blogs also. My family is kind of all over the place. I get really happy and emotional when I see family’s like yours all together and loving, that’s something very special to have❀️ cherish it always.

    1. Family is definitely such a blessing, and I am very thankful for mine. ❀ You know, family isn't just the people you live with and are related to; it's also our closest friends, the ones we choose to hang out with; the people who love us like family πŸ™‚ I hope that one day, you'll get to have a sweet little family of your own, Lee – you deserve to have that love and joy in your life. πŸ’•βœ¨

      1. Yes I know, I’ve had close friends that were like family but unfortunately friendships don’t always last. One day my own little family I’ll do my best to keep it full of love❀️


  4. Of course your going to be that cool older sister, you already are πŸ˜‰ What a blessing your family is, I can tell by the way you write about them πŸ™‚ Your parents sound amazing (of course I know your mom is because I read her blog but then you confirm it here) It’s nice to hear more about your dad. It sounds like he’s great too. He has all that love for all of y’all, and you can’t beat a great sense of humour πŸ™‚ It’s funny he likes classic cars. We are restoring a 64′ Ford 350 dump bed truck (although I don’t know if that’s considered classic) We’re almost done. A few little things here and there. I appreciate you sharing Maggie. It’s nice to get to know you, and your family better πŸ™‚ Is that your favourite blanket I see in the picture with Samuel and Elizabeth?

    1. Aw, thank you ❀ πŸ™‚ They are pretty awesome; I couldn't have asked God for a better family for me!! I'll have to tell my dad about that truck you're restoring. It sounds great! And yes, that is my favorite blanket πŸ™‚ Usually, I keep it at my desk, but I felt like cuddling up with it that morning. haha

  5. This is so sweet! My own sister and I have a very close she gap, while my younger brother is 7 years younger. We’re all not as close as we used to be, especially now that me and Jo have moved out. Cherish the time you have with your siblings and family while you’re all under the same roof! πŸ˜„

    1. I definitely am! It’s crazy to think that one day, we won’t live with each other anymore. I’ll definitely be going places and visiting them all the time, haha! Childhood is a blessing πŸ™‚ ❀

  6. Your family is so cute! I love it!!! My family consists of my mom and dad and my little sister! She’s three ears younger than me and we’re pretty close. We carpool to work together as we work in the same place and constantly do things together. While sometimes I wish I had more siblings I think 1 is more than enough most of the time πŸ˜‚

      1. Hahahahahaha yeah it would be bad to lose one of you! Still your siblings seem so lovely and of course you know I love your mom! Also your dad gave his blessing for your mom to buy a $40 primer so clearly he’s a good man! πŸ˜€
