About The Children (2013)

This is the 2013 survey filled out by all children who were under the age of 18 at the beginning of the year.
This year we stopped filling out a survey for our children and instead created an "Our Family" page
with a brief summary of what all of the members of the family are doing.

In addition to answering the questions, everyone picked out a picture to represent themselves.
