Friday-Finally! This has been the longest week ever.......... (daughter says; Mom, hasn't this week gone so fast!) She says her favorite class so far is Science! I hate science, so I took that as another good sign that so far this was a good decision. Her 2 best friends have been thrilled with her going to school with them, and she's already made lots of new friends. She's always made friends so easy, she's so happy and outgoing and fun to be around. Thursday she called from school and wanted to go over to her new friend's house...... What?? What about us? Doesn't she know we look forward to her coming home all day long? It's the highlight of our day! Of course I didn't say any of that. I calmly said that today probably wasn't the best day. I also didn't say that I had no idea who this family was, that their house could have hidden mold in the walls, they could have a pit bull, or a cute older brother who loves girls with curly hair..... Yes I honestly thought about all that. And now it's friday and she has plans to go over to one of her B.F.'s house and stay the night. Her sisters were not too happy about that. They wouldn't see her for almost two whole days. I know exactly how they feel, but I put on a brave face and remind them( and me) to be happy for her and tell them we'll have lots of time to spend with her. I'm not sure what this new year will hold for all of us, but I do know that God holds us in the palm of His hand, and knowing that feels amazing! Did I mention that she already has a crush on a boy?????????????????????????????????
