Laikyn is our "baby." She will be 18 in a few months. She recently received the study-at-home materials to get certified to be a Personal Fitness Trainer. She will graduate in December of this year from high school.
One of the coolest things I love about Laikyn is that she's always wanted the "costume" for everything. She wanted (and I made her) a Pocahontas outfit when she was little. She also had a Little House on the Prairie dress and bonnet. She had the whole camouflage Army outfit at one point, too (complete with BB gun).
When her study materials came in this week for Personal Fitness Trainer, she was looking through the material and said, "Ooh, I want a t-shirt!" I just had to laugh. She said, "What?!" I said, "You've always had to have the costume to go with whatever you're doing. I think it's so cool and so funny!"
Laikyn's favorite things:
- track and field
- Celine Dion
- cars (she can tell you what make and model a car on the road is)
- cute guys
- Giada de Laurentiis
- pasta (or food in general; she's always hungry)
- Nathan (she said he's toward the bottom of the list only because he's so new that she didn't think about him at first!)
- the Summer Olympics
