Better Days

Since my last post we are all seeing better school days.  Isabel is making a few friends.  A sweet girl invited her to sit at her table at lunch.  It is amazing what one small act of kindness can do to one's confidence.  Don't get me wrong...she still doesn't want to go to school but at least the tears have stopped and I have seen a few smiles.   
Here are a few pics from the first day of school for everyone.  Caroline is making friends and is a helper during the morning announcements with the coveted job of calling the office to say they are ready to begin.  She missed out on camera man or announcer.  Charlotte is friendly with everyone but would like to "skip school" to sleep in.  Grace continues to love her preschool and is even talking to her teacher and some friends this year.  She would not talk to her teacher last year until around April.  Here's is hoping all of you (my 6 readers/friends) had a wonderful start to your school year.

I'm so glad things are going better! Broke my heart to hear about the lonely transition. That can be so hard!! Can't wait to see you at book club and get the update. Your girls are beautiful and I LOVE your red door!!
