Long Overdue!

I have many other things to post about, but I always get behind, and then don't post anything!  This blog I feel more weight on my shoulders to say something amazing!  So I did write a post about Fayes birthday, but I did not feel it was amazing enough to post!  Silly I know!  Sometime this week I will just click that little publish button and call it a day!  I don't know why I get such anxiety about it!

I guess no news is good news right!  We are happy to report Faye is doing amazing!  In about a week it will be one year from when she got to come home!  HOLY COW right!  We could not be happier with the way everything is working out, and how well she is doing!  

She started Kindergarten yesterday!  It is such a bittersweet moment!  We are so excited for her to be in Kindergarten!  Especially since a year and a half ago we didn't have a clue as to where our lives would be at this point!  So sending her off to school was super exciting!  It is always sad to send your kids off to school, it means they are getting too big, but at the same is exciting to see this little girl grow up and pass all those darn cancer milestones she will be passing!
 She wanted her hair in pigtails for the first day of school!  At first I was bummed, because I wanted to be able to do her hair in some cute way for the first day of school!  But then I realized having her hair long enough to put into cute little pigtails is perfect for her!
 Her sweet teacher Mrs. Cook!  She seems so nice, and we are excited for Faye to have her.
 Sitting at this desk she seems way to grown up!  She was right ready to go....sat right down in her seat and was ready to begin!
 Day two!  Just had to snap a quick shot, cuz she looked so darn adorable!  Do you love her pose as much as I do?   Look at all that hair!  I still cannot believe how fast it is growing in! 
So heres to going to school!  I will get you updated with everything else Faye has been doing!  Especially now her and Mitchell are in school!  No excuses anymore right!
