About Us

Olive and I are both 12 years old (in sixth grade) and are identical twins. But we're not alike in everything. It's like that old MK & A song, "Identical Twins" (and for the record, MK & A are fraternal twins).

I'm the outgoing sister. I'm younger by seven minutes and, in fact, my sister and I were born on different days! How cool is that? Instead of having one day to celebrate, we have two!

My sister is pretty quiet. I love soccer and Olive loves to dance. My favorite colors are green and purple and hers are pink and yellow. I love owls and Olive loves wolves. I love singing and she loves painting. We have our own fashion styles, although sometimes we like to dress alike. I'm into the Twilight series and Olive loves The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I'm a righty and my sister's a lefty.

We're also alike in some ways. We're both allergic to mangoes (it's mild). We both love some of the same movies and books. We love amusement parks. We both want to travel the world someday and we both love seals.

We're "two...two, totally...totally, utterly...utterly Opposite...opposite, totally...totally, different...different Identical twins!"


Here's a photo of us dressed alike:

First Post

Hi, my name is Aimee Goodwin. I've decided to start this blog, with my sister, Olive. I'll probably write in this blog more than my sis but she'll write, too. Our dad passed away last month. He was in a bad car accident. We miss him a lot. Olive especially because she was closer to dad while I'm closer to mom. We just moved from Kansas, with our mom, to our Aunt Judy's house, in Star Valley. Olive and I also visited Aunt Judy for a couple weeks, back in June.

I'm excited to have my own room here. Back at our old home, Olive and I shared a room. Here, we each get our own rooms. I think I want plum and jade green walls. Those two colors are so pretty. We're going to pick up the paint for our rooms in a little bit.

I guess the schools here start tomorrow but mom is keeping us home this week so can settle in. So we'll start school next week. I hope we don't miss much.

Have you ever lost someone you love? Have you ever moved to a new home?
