The last few weeks are pretty much a blur. We have had some issues with Makayla while she is at school. She has been to In School Suspension twice within a couple of weeks. Alex and I have been worried about where these behaviors and feelings are coming from. We often have to take a step back and realize that Makayla had a very different life before she came to live with us and typically, no matter how bad the situation was, a child usually has a desire for what they knew. I think that Makayla went through a lot before coming to live with us but she is not very verbal about any of it. I worry that she holds a lot in and then all of a sudden it begins to pour out of her in ways that she doesn't understand. So, please keep KayKay in your prayers. She is good most of the time but those rare outbursts are coming more often and more drastically.
Abigail got her report card and...drum roll please....she made all A's. We are so proud of her. One of her favorite things is to get a chocolate milk shake from Chick-Fil-E. I took her out for a special treat and got her one for all of her hard work.
Olivia is doing good. Her new favorite word is to say "what?" after everything that you say to her whether she heard you or not. She still loves M & M's, Minnie Mouse, Elmo, and pizza. She loves her baby "Lucy" that Nana got her for Christmas. Lucy is a creepy little doll. She reminded me of Chucky. We named her Lucy, short for Lucifer. Olivia also got a little 4 wheeler for Christmas and she rides it all around the house. When her sisters start chasing eachother, Olivia hops on her 4 wheeler and takes off after them.
Makayla cheering at her first basketball game. She's the loudest one on the team. We are so proud of her!
This was her first Purple Cow purple shake.
Ha, that looks like a Bill Clinton thumbs up.
