Running to school...

For the last 2 full weeks (which seem like a lifetime in a way), R has been in tears before going to school (and angry). Each day, she would come out all grins and say that her day was good but then, an hour later (or so) it would be a proclamation NOT to go back to school in the morning.

Today (hopefully) was the beginning of a new chapter as far as school goes. When I was about to pull into the drop off zone, she saw one of her classmates, rolled down the window, and was yelling "HELLO!" to her friend. I didn't even have to get up to the stairs before she was getting out of the car and literally running ahead of her friend (and also seeing some more friends)... Happy moment!

This afternoon, G picked her up from school and she got to have a "picnic" at their house (which she has been crying to do the last couple of days) while J was asleep. J (unfortunately) has caught a bug and has been running a fever since last night so... it's a catch 22.

I am also (slowly) making headway with Donovan's stuff... Found a box of statements, bills (surprise! but already paid) that I just need to take to a shredding place and have them demolished. Also found a CD that he made for R when she was 3 (Blue Danube)... Good memories but still hurts a bit. It may be an uphill climb sometimes but, I know I'm not the only one that's gone through this and I know God is there through it all.... Onward and upwards!

More to follow......


  1. Carrie, so sorry deary. I can't even begin to imagine. You are such a good mom and so inspiring.

    Hey, I noticed that two of my family members are friends with aunt and one of my cousins...are we related?? Just kind of funny since those two live on opposite ends of TN.

    See you on FB! Take care!!! Blessings to you guys!!!

  2. I have no idea... Since I am adopted, there's no telling! :)
