|Melaina became somewhat famous, receiving local television coverage for her origami crane project.
Melaina (a.k.a. the "Munchkin") is now 12 and still cute
as a button
Melaina currently participates in high school basketball and track, qualifying for the D2 state track meet as a member of her schools' 4x200 relay. I can't keep track of all the other things she does, but it's a lot.
This girl could have a career as a singer as she's very gregarious and loud
enough that she wouldn't need a microphone.
Very bright and is going to be a money-making machine when she's out on her own. Some of her various enterprises have included dog walking, lemonade and hot chocolate stands, and selling Mulberry's from our tree.
Also gets a "F" in bedroom cleanliness. I used to cut her some slack because her old room was so small, but now I realize there's no hope.
Was brave enough to spend the night in an igloo I made in the backyard. Click here for the video.
