It’s been a few weeks since we had a proper Five Fact Friday! From bear hunts, to meeting the mayor and more, I’m excited to jump right in!
A few days later we got pinned in the school pick-up line, and when someone finally let us out, Sophie exclaimed “WE GOT OUR LIBERTY BACK!”
This week, Sophie was nominated as school citizen of the month and was honored by the (female!!!!) city mayor last night in a town meeting. She’s thriving in school. There are still plenty of challenging things, and life is not perfect, but the progress is leaps and bounds above what I let myself dare to believe was possible three years ago. She’s smart and bubbly and happy. She’s a creative and critical thinker. She has friends at school, and her teachers (even the P.E. teacher) have had wonderful, kind things to tell me.
My goal for Sophie has always been that she’s comfortable in her skin and that she is free to do whatever she’s capable of. She continues to blow me away, and I’ve been teary and grateful this week that she’s a girl who never, never gives up. I want to be more like her!
