We are Still Alive
Ok, so I know it's been almost 3 months since I've posted, but I've got a good excuse. We've been busy! Since my last post we went from a family of 4 to a family of 7. Boy has our life changed! Hannah has done remarkably well with the change. She now has a roommate for the first time in her life and has gone from only to oldest to middle child very quickly and with little fuss. The biggest problem she has had is that the new girls lie A LOT and also tell "stories" that Hannah instantly recognizes as baloney and she just can't handle it. She insists they are wrong/lying and then a huge argument ensues and she can't let it go and escalates and then things get physical. Not ideal, but then we expected much worse.
Since I last wrote Hannah finished Kindergarten, learned to ride her bike without training wheels, and ditched the back on her booster. It's been a big few months for her. Instead of try to fill you in with words I think I'll just let the pictures do the talking.
