Flying Spirit

That's Sariah's Indian name. She's a flying spirit, and your life will be enriched by encountering her energy, optimism, creative stories, and assertive opinions.

Lately, she literally became a flying spirit, complete with painting her face:

NOTE: That scratch is NOT from her jumping. She scratched her tummy about 2 or 3 weeks ago, and has nothing to do with her jumping. Lest you think that I just stand by and watch my daughter fall to her hurtful tummy, please know that this injury is totally unrelated to any strenuous physical activity. It was an accident. =)

NOTE 2: That's eyeliner on her face. She didn't scratch her face all up - she's put on warrior makeup!

Wearing only a loin-cloth:

And jumping from anything she can. She doesn't gingerly jump - she takes a huge flying leap. Think "flying squirrel."

NOTE: It looks like Sariah is jumping right onto rocks and the brick edging. Don't be deceived! She's jumping far enough out to land, safely, into the grass. She's like a cat - always lands on her feet!

She makes it look so easy, doesn't she?? I think it's time to sign her up for gymnastics!

I'd be so terrified! But she does seem to make it look easy!

Hey, I'm looking to teach online next year...can you email with tips for landing a position? I'm struggling to find anything at this point.
