Ellie is pretty incredible at the age of 5. She is very funny, and always tries to get a laugh out of her friends by making crazy sounds or telling jokes. She likes school, and loves to draw especially. She invents great stories, really inventive tales that she tells Tommy. She loves to be read to and is on the cusp of learning to read herself. She is very strong. There isn't a set of monkey bars that she can get across. She loves to go to sporting events and tries hard to learn the rules. Ellie is a leader with her friends, a little too strong of a leader at times, something we are working on. She adores Luke, and is incredibly sweet with him. She is less that way with Tommy, as they both grow older we see more sibling struggles.
We are so lucky to have watched Ellie grow and blossom into such a great young lady.
