I am glad that I am the youngest. Some kids might be sad that they have all this schoolwork ahead, and they look at their older brother or sister and wish they had already done that much schoolwork. They will start doing things like staying up as late as they want and running their own house before I will, but I think that God has a plan for me and that He made me the youngest for a reason.

I am also glad because being an MK (that's short for missionary kid) has given me a lot of exciting adventures. Since Morgan is almost ready for college, he is a little sad because he is going to miss some of the awesome adventures that my brothers and I are going to have. And then once Hudson is in college he will also miss out on some cool things that I will be able to do, and the same thing might happen with Kian.

One of the things I do not like about being the youngest is when we Skype with my grandparents, they always want to see how tall we are compared to my mom. Morgan is definitely taller than my mom. Hudson is taller than my mom. Kian is also taller than my mom. Then it comes to me, and I am not taller than my mom. Another thing that is kind of annoying is when all my brothers are allowed to go on a hike and I am not sometimes. I do not always mind, because it might be very cold that day, and while they are out hiking I can take a shower or watch a movie or something. But yeah, I will get my turn of adventures when they are in college. Overall, though, I like being the youngest of the family. If I weren't, I wouldn't be who I am today.
