First day of ESY and a little photo shoot with big sister..

all glammed up!

ESY (extended school year) started today for Lillian. It will run for a month. Then, about a month off and back to regular school year. Summer days are slipping away. ( She had a great day aside from standing out in a thunderstorm 40 minutes wating for the bus, all went fine)

I'm getting psyched for our trip to plastics next week, hoping he will decide to do the prosthetic. We will also be getting her immunology done then as well. Life is staying busy around here and last night I had a moment of sheer, well, I don't know what..but I longed to take the family and go to a beach and have a week of lazing on the beach. I've even thought about it all day. How wonderful it would be not to HAVE to be getting up, getting ready, going to school, going to therapies....sighs...Sometimes, this life just needs a little slow down, a good slow down. As much as I love my life in this very moment, I long for a vacation with my family. Just a time to relax and enjoy each other, no jobs, no schedules....sighs again.


  1. Love love love these pics! She looks so OLD. Love that girl! Here's hoping your immunologist has more bedside manner than ours at Riley did. I think he must have been on the spectrum b/c he didn't even introduce himself, just started right in with his fancy talk.

  2. Why does she look older??? what is she doing? Growing?? Well, it happens to the best of us, LOL (liked your comment)

    I'd love to join you at the beach for a week of nothing! Why can't we just do what we want sometimes?????

  3. She is SO adorable. I just want to cry. You are an amazingly strong woman and I am so proud you are my sister. Every day you amaze me. Love you!

    I just met little Lily a couple of weeks ago and fell instantly in love with her. She is so sweet spirited and happy and you can see the love of God in her eyes. I pray for her to have a long and happy life. She has an extended family that loves her very much and her family is so lucky to have her also!

  5. Michelle - she is all grown up! (I am not sure how I feel about that...) She looks fantastic and I love hearing about all the wonderful things she is doing. You are a fantastic mom who only does what she knows is best for her babies...ignore the TA (just caught up a bit). Hope to see you soon!

  6. She does look so old, and so good! How nice! Although I loved the extended school year for Tanner, it does make summer go way too fast. Also, I love not being on year round school, this way we get a whole summer!
