Survey for my sister

Who wants to help my big sister, Daniela?

As some of you know, my parents have 4 daughters, A,B,C and D. A is the youngest, and D(aniela) is the oldest. Daniela is awesome. She and her husband moved to Canada a few years ago. They have two boys, ages 13 and 12. (Super well-behaved boys, btw. They even bought her flowers for her birthday this year)

Daniela has had various jobs over the last few years. She was head wrangler (horses) at a christian camp, she was a cook for a mennonite museum, she was a ....what would you call, she worked at a pig-raising farm, taking care of the sweetest piglets you've even seen. This week she took on another challenge and started her job as a church secretary. I wish you all the best, D, for your new job.

Dani, as we call her, started school again last year. She always wanted to finish high school and now she's taking night classes to finish grade 12. I am so proud of her! (Kleenex, please)

She asked me if I could help her on an english project she's doing, and of course, if your oldest sister needs your help, you help her! And I love doing it, too. She wants me to post a survey on my blog and would like my readers to answer this survey and send it back to her. She needs at least 20 responses and it has to get to her by Tuesday (Oct. 27). Who will help? You can send in your responses to:

Thanks, everyone!
