It is so amazing to watch Dakota blossom and grow! She takes such pride in helping out with the house cleaning and taking care of her little sister. She *joyfully* helps me clean. I do not have to force her, bride her or beg her. In fact, with no "required" chores, she voluntarily helps, because she feels part of our family and she sees me doing these things *joyfully*. There is no power struggle, just partnership. This life amazes me more and more everyday!
