Middle School Makeover












We went to orientation on Fri. am for Hannah's new school. MIDDLE SCHOOL...how is this possible? I vividly remember her first day of kindergarten..now this. I think I might have whiplash...life is moving too fast. She decided that she needed a new look for school. I tried to discourage this, as I know my sweet one is rather impulsive with her decision making, but she has persisted over the last couple of months and today we went and cut her hair. As her mother I believe it is the most adorable haircut on her. The girls at the shop were giving her cute ideas for little clips to wear in her hair and such. Really cute. She was so brave and sat there calmy while our wonderful stylist made her even more beautiful. She looks so stylish and trendy. I hope that she continues to have the self confidence and spirit she has now. She doesn't care that everyone else has long hair....this is what she wanted and she save her money to get it done. I then treated her to a pedi. Always a relaxing experience, then lunch, school supply shopping and then home. I am exhausted and still have other things on our list to get...tomorrow after church...please I can't go any longer today!!!!!







Claire had to get her last catch up immunizations yesterday and has been a real bear today. She keeps pointing to her leg and saying "owie...doctor" It makes for a little harder day for everyone. I am sure she will be much better tomorrow. She will be starting at our Mother's Day Out program at church on Sept. 5....I am sure that will be more traumatic for me than for her, but she will also really enjoy it too. I must remain strong at drop off time.







Enjoy the pics

Hannah's hair cute is adorable! Love the toes too I love it that she has her own little mind and is not afraid to express herself. How refreshing that she doesn't feel the need to follow the pack.

What a great hairdo!! She's looking mighty fine. You'll be fightin' off the boys ;) Just what the mom of a middle schooler wants to hear (tee hee).

Nana Susan sent me scurrying over to see Hannah's new "do", she thinks it's just darling and so do I.

Have fun in middle school Miss H, don't forget we are ALL watching you:):):)

Looks like she is all ready to go! Love the piggy toes! ;)





Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
