Third year, Week 19 - Prepping for School.....

I haven't given the new school year much thought, really.  Babygirl will be in 8th grade in the same school as last year.  I've faxed her medical letter to the school doctor.  Her headaches seem infrequent.  We just got a new phone to replace the one she lost in the spring ("It's in the truck, Mom!"  Well, maybe, but heck if any of us can find it LOL). 

School clothes shopping is scheduled for Saturday, and JuJuBee (and I imagine little Sunny) are coming along.  We have tour favorite stores - Plato's Closet, Old Navy, TJMaxx, Rue 21. I think Babygirl has a lot more energy available this year, so it will be a marathon.

Babygirl turns 14 on Sunday.  She wants lunch at a nice restaurant (The Loft for you who are local - very French atmosphere) and a dessert party at home.  We'll see how that plays out - Hubby works Sundays, so timing will be a challenge.

I can't believe she'll be 14.  The first birthday we celebrated with her, she was a tiny, underfed toddler who didn't understand English yet, let alone understand the cake, the two candles, and the concept of opening a gift.  Even then she was a sweet, loving, calm child whose huge brown eyes could melt a heart.  She's harder to say 'no' to than any of her sisters!

I'm praying for a better year.  We started last year with such hope!  She was feeling great, looked medically stable, and was so ready to get back into the swing of things.  She ended up attending less that half a year of classes. 

It has to be better this year.  Please.
