i got some cool stuff today

i got some cool stuff today, originally uploaded by Jhascrapmom.
my girl back from camp and we took possession of our new home.

and the discovery that i have pink sparkly sconces in my bathroom.
how did i miss that the first time round?
i may never leave.

and about the girl.

he got his girlfriend back

she had a hard time at camp this year.
all her worries about our big move, how this will impact her beloved friendships here, the challenges of a new school...HIGH SCHOOL...and a new city, worries about my sister, her precious aunt...all ended up weighing very heavily on her 12 year old mind.

luckily, she was in a very wonderful, safe place that cares for it's kids like their own.

part of me thinks that being away from home allowed her to actually face a lot of these fears. and did she ever;).

the girl i picked up today was smiling and happy and confident and awesome. open to talking and not holding anything back any more. i love that she is so independent and brave a kid:).

and man, am i glad she is home:).

he got his girl back
we brought miss mackenzie with us as a surprise:)
vicki, counsellor extraordinaire
life returns to normal. the new normal
