Lily was “exhilarated” by the thought of starting grade 4 with her friends from CVA. Even a rainy morning and a late bus couldn’t dampen her spirits!
Lily’s having a growth spurt so her doc did a bone age x-ray last Wednesday (normal)
Then she slammed her hand in the basement door on Saturday and today we had to x-ray the same hand again! Weird, right?! She doesn’t have any obvious fractures but needs to wear the splint just in case.
The kids have outgrown their “tree house”. Can I keep it as yard art?!
Yes, Lily chose one of the most difficult recipes I’ve ever made. I shouldn’t have waited until 6pm the night before to ask what she wanted, but still!
Hil is awaiting the bus for the last first day at LJA. We’re all a little sad.
Lily recently completed the Twin Cities Theater Camp(!) production of Urinetown. She had a great time! Her character’s name was Emily Ocean. It’s an intensive 5 week program, and Lily missed over a week of it due to our summer vacation, but she rallied and was a big presence on stage for the performances!
After 2 seasons of no scores, the Sharks (Lily’s soccer team) finally scored a goal, in the last game of the second season. And it was Lily that scored it! “Elation” falls short of the screaming!
If there are any Sharks that see this, Thea’s name is Lily, but we called her Thea (short for Dorothea which is her middle name) because there was already a Lily on the team!
Lily put together her own costume for CVA spirit week Super Hero Day, including a pair of my old boots, which she wore all day. Impressive! I guess warm blood is her other super power. She’s like Elsa… “the cold never bothered her anyway”
