Because of the 5 year age gap between Christa and myself, by the time Christa hit high school, Danielle, Rachel, Andrea, myself were off to university ourselves.

Christa learned a lot growing up. She learned how to socialize and most importantly to play. Even though Christa was the baby, she became a big sister when Sarah and Jenna were born.
