First day of school

Angela
Entering 7th grade
In her own words, now in the MIDDLE of the food chain!
 Liz
Entering 11th grade
Scary that my "baby" is now a Jr! 
 The only time they're together now for school is the bus ride in the morning.
 What LIZ really feels about this whole "summer is over" business!

Day 5 post - op and almost back to "normal"

Not too happy after a HOT day on the band practice field to catch up on what she missed with the tooth removal.
maybe she won't flub it all tomorrow at "official" band practice?  Hum... follow the leader Liz, follow the leader!
