AMIGUITA OF THE WEEK ~ Catalina*

Catalina* is quiet and pensive, yet also has a strength about her that isn't often found in kids her age. The oldest of her three sisters, she is a natural leader and not afraid to speak her mind. She can often be found reading, coloring, or doing other quiet activities, but she also has an athletic streak and has found a love for soccer at Amigos. We can't wait to see Catalina grow!
