Flannery's First Day of School 2012

I have a middle schooler. 6th grade. This is big. Before she started, she decided she wanted her hair red. I protested a bit and than Chris said, "It's just hair." So, we colored it. She got a fabulous cut at a salon, and in June, she got her braces on. She's all grown up.

She plays soccer, goes to youth group twice a week, joined beginning band and plays the clarinet. We started attending church again, after a hiatus after Easter and I joined a women's group that meets Thursday evenings. 

My creativity is stuck in the mud right now and I haven't been designing or creating at all lately. I miss it, but I know better than to force it. When I do that, it's never pretty. 

I love living in Gresham, close to friends and to our families. We've been here a little over a year now, and I think we like it. So far so good.
