At first glance, she might seem like a delicate little wisp of a girl, just beyond toddlerhood but not quite worldly enough for preschool. Her slow, sweet smile might convey an air of innocence. She may even cling to her mama's leg a bit.
But then you turn your back and she's trying to cut the wedding cake. All. By. Her. Self. Thankyouverymuch. Before the bride and groom have had a chance to finish the main course.
And then she's sweetly dancing with her brother, swaying to the music and charming the crowd.
But slow dancing is not her style, so she is soon doing the jitterbug and looking for a more experienced dance partner.
Her search is cut short, however, when she discovers a challenge just outside the doors.
And goodness knows she enjoys a challenge.
Indeed, you can dress her up, but you can't keep her off the straw stack. She is, after all, a country kid.
