Abbey's 1st day of 8th grade.

Abbey started 8th grade today. She was a little nervous this morning but ended up have a pretty good day ... basically they just sat around in homeroom all day. One if her best friends is in her homeroom class so she was happy. lol Tomorrow she'll start her classes at the High School and be bussed back for her remaining classes at the Junior High. All the back and forth makes me nervous, but I'll try to calm my momma bear over protective instincts and just wait to see how it goes. I can't believe my sweet baby girl is turning 13 next month!!! I'm not sure where the time went but oh boy it sure went by fast!! This year for her birthday she wanted something a little different and since you only turn 13 once we are throwing her a big weekend camping / birthday party at Garner State Park. We've arranged for three connecting camping sites and so far have a guest list of 8 little girls for the weekend and about 40 friends and family for the celebration on Sunday. Now the fun begins ... shopping for the party, making invitations and thinking about playing in the nice cool river!!! :-)

Abigail and Ella

This adorable little one is my new niece Ella, she's my baby sister Elizabeth's new baby. She was 30 days early, weighs 6.3 and is 18 inches long. She's so tiny, like one of Abbey's baby dolls. Abbey was over the moon happy to have been allowed up to my sister's room to visit and hold Ella. Elizabeth's baby shower was supposed to be tomorrow. lol Ella just didn't want to miss out on the fun.
