Change is a powerful thing. In Em's case, it has also been a scary thing. And full of grief and loss. We're still working our way through all of the stages of grief and working towards acceptance. She's okay and is doing a great job working her way through a new school but sometimes it all comes rushing back and overwhelms her. We're in one of those stages now and watching her go through this is breaking my heart. Add in the hormones and drama that goes along with being in 7th grade and getting ready to turn 13 and it's overwhelming to me, too.
We're taking a family day tomorrow because the kids have the day off. So, we're doing a jammies day with movies and popcorn and ice cream all day long. I think we'll all benefit from a little break with reality. :)
