Sarah was invited to mid-winter by her friend, Joe Canter. The way he went about the inviting scored just a few brownie points with Eric and me. He went to Build-a-Bear and put together a bear complete with roses in hand and, when you push the bear's paw, a recording of Joe's voice saying, "Sarah, will you go to mid-winter with me?" Eric said at least he gets points for being original. He seems like a great guy and his family seems very nice. This is one of the first times she has really shown an interest in a boy and I have dreaded this for a while, BUT, he has made it a lot easier than I thought!
Feeling really proud of her. She has adjusted to the early teen years really well and has made good choices so far. I will keep praying that it continues!!
