The Match-Up

In this corner, weighing in at 100 lbs-- he's loud, he's large, he likes to be in charge--- IT'S CLARK FOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And in this corner, weighing in at 35 lbs-- she's short, she's sweet, she can be very sassy-- IT'S FAITH FOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An unlikely match-up, but these two have quite a battle of wills going on.

In fairness to Clark, Faith (AKA: the informer) loves to tattle on Clark. She will rat him for anything. She doesn't negotiate or made deals with him. On our recent trip to the northwest my brother gave Clark is old Nintendo Game Boy. Clark was THRILLED and on the way home Faith saw Clark playing with it and said, "Uh Oh! Clark took something of Matt and Misty's!"
If Clark sneaks an extra piece of candy or doesn't get off the computer when his time is up, Faith is very quick to let us know. She doesn't rat out anybody else-- just Clark.

In fairness to Faith, Clark does seem to derive joy from teasing and tormenting his younger sisters. Actually, he has left Faith pretty much alone, but she is very sympathetic to Bethany. I think she has taken up Bethany's cause.

Maybe Clark has finally met his match!
