She Made It Through

Whew.

Katie made it through her 2 week program at her new high school.  (Story background here)  Things were going along well when she slumped into the car seat on Monday and said "Guess who's going to school here now too!!!"  From the tone of her voice and the tears in her eyes I figured it out. 

I've mentioned that a bully from her grade school has signed up at this school as well.  That stressed her out but, she was finding that he wasn't acting as horribly as he had in the past.  Well, this boy has a friend you see, and this friend, although a brilliant mind, is also pretty awful to Katie.  Not what she wanted from her new school experience.  On Monday she was miserable at the thought of relieving the stress from her 8th grade year and again, I'm doubting whether this school is going to work out. 

However, when she got into the car on Tuesday she shared that this boy had not only smiled at her but also came over to her and said, "Hey.  What's up Katie?"  She has a very kind heart but after what she's been through with these boys she's not giving in to forgiveness just yet.  My advice was to just smile and nod.  I know that things sucked with these crappy, no jerks, nope - guys, but if one of them is growing up and saying "Hello" let's move forward... with caution.

Katie has met 5 girls that she has lunch with and I hope that these girls can see just how special my precious Katie is and stick with her. 

On we go.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
