It's that time of year again. Time for school to re-open and time for the fall schedule to start getting very busy. We took Chels back to college on Thursday night. It is always hard to send her off...we miss her so much. But, it was a good chance for me to see how much she has grown and matured this past year...and she really has. She has gained a lot more confidence and is much more sure of herself than she was a year ago at this time. She worked 2 jobs over the summer and is really growing into a beautiful and responsible young lady. Teens have lots of choices to make when they are going through their teen years and we are glad that Chels has made lots of good choices....we are very proud of her!
The sitter helped the girls make cards for Sissy's going away. I loved this one that Ella made, so I framed it for Chels! Notice the(hand drawn) picture of Ella and Sissy....Ella ALWAYS makes sure that she uses that black crayon for her and Sophie's hair and uses the brown crayon for the rest of our hair color. : )
Ella helped her Ba Ba put together the futon for the dorm room
This picture is so Ella. She is very inquisitive about everything!! A very smart little cookie!
These 3 gals have been best friends since they were in Pre-school!! I am so happy they still are close even though they do not go to college near one another!!
Over the week-end we met our friends for a play date at Build a Bear!
Ella loves her "Sara Panda" and has not put the bear down since we came home!! She does not like baby dolls...but loves her stuffed animals. I think I will go and get a few outfits for Sara Panda since she plays with it so much!
**Sophie's eye surgery was this morning and it went well!! She is resting now....no side effects from the anesthesia or anything. Thanks to those who e-mailed me to check and see how she is doing.....I am behind in getting back to everyone.
p.s. I did not blog about her surgery ahead of time....I had meant to and just did not get the chance.
Be Blessed, my friends!!!
