The life and times in the Hannig house of learning.... or mayhem, whatever the case may be. (and if we get truly lucky, BOTH!!)

What I enjoy the most about Ellie is also probably the most difficult thing about her. She refuses to be pushed into anything. When she says no, it is doubtful that it will become yes. She is a quiet breath of fresh air in a world that is constantly trying to conform to a norm that simply does not matter or exists for her. I enjoy hearing her speak as though she is a scholar and at the same time does not like to read a word. (oh she reads, but only when SHE decides it would be nice to do so.) Ellie does not want to impress me. She wants to be who she is for me. And I try to drink in every moment, who knows how long until the world matters and she slips into doing things for status quo. If I could I would have her be this strong forever.
