I told him I didn’t think I would be returning to normal so quickly – and he agreed. He said children are just more resilient and heal faster.
We’re continuing to keep her home for at least a couple of more weeks to protect her from viruses, etc. She misses her ballet class, but she is keeping busy here with the other kids.
We’re working on her pilgrim dress for Thanksgiving, today. I have slowly added to the costume over the years – first the apron, then the white, broad collar and cuffs (well, the cuffs were made of poster board which I cut out and then we stapled them together and slipped them over the girls’ wrists). Last year, we did a few of the mothers’ pilgrim dresses. Now, it’s time to do dresses for the girls. Sophia’s dress will be brown, Isabella’s blue, and Olivia’s red. Alix and Kate have been working on theirs this week – we just need to finish them off.
Thank you for continuing to pray for Sophia! She has been so happy reading the sweet notes and cards you’ve sent! She has set them all on the counter in the kitchen so she can see them each day. Don’t be surprised to find something from her in your own mailbox soon!
