It's hard to believe that one month ago this little girl was in the PICU recovering from her surgery... The Lord is amazing!
Today she had her Fall Party at Mother's Day Out and she was a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader... She actually let me put these rollers in her hair. She was so excited because she has pretty straight hair and I just don't ever curl it.
That's a lot of rollers...
Here's a picture of Rain 3 years ago when she wore this outfit for Halloween. They really do look so much alike!
And Rain had a BIG day today, too. At her school, every nine weeks the students get rewarded for their academics, attendance and behavior. Each student who meets the criteria is given a special T-shirt, and stars to iron-on to it. After they earn their first shirt and stars, the next nine weeks they get more stars to add to their shirts.
The kids get so excited and work really hard to earn their shirts. Today, Rain earned her shirt and stars for A honor roll and behavior. (She missed a day while Maya was in the hospital)
The classes also get awards for having the cleanest room (voted on by custodial staff), being the best in the hallway (voted by special areas), best attendance and best cafeteria behavior. The special areas also hand out "golden" awards for the classes that give the best effort. Today Rain's class won "Hallway Heros" and the "Golden Shoe".
Here she is with her best friend, Valeria after the awards assembly. I can't believe that she is already in second grade. Where does the time go?
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
