Our week

We've had a busy, but nice first week back to school. I feel like I am on a rollercoaster and won't be able to get off until Christmas break. Lots of great things going on in our lives. I hope to be able to keep up with the blog...I am going to try hard to keep documenting our lives for Paige.
Paige had her first scare at school last week. She brought home the wrong workbook for homework and had a meltdown once she discovered it wasn't the right book. Her teacher is very big on students being independent (I am, too). Fortunately, my mom was able to get her to school early the next day and she completed the page before school. I keep telling Paige that it is alright to make mistakes. She can be so tough on herself. I often say we don't ever really have to punish her, because she is so hard on herself. I hope that she will be able to breathe a little and not take things so seriously in the future. This is something we have to work on. I hope everyone has a great week!

HI MIssy,
I have been wanting to stop by and say hello but unfortunately I lost my beloved Mother and can't seem to grasp it. I am so lost without her, she was my rock, my friend, my Momma.

I know I have to be strong for my daughter. It was a terribly unexpected and my family is grieving deeply. I haven't been blogging nor flickring but have been admiring your work.

I only have strength to email those I'm in contact with, plus I didn't want you to think I dropped off the face of the earth.

Paige is so beautiful and your love for her is so powerful and amazing. I hope we meet one day soon.

Missy,
Fabulous pictures! I love these, I keep seeing that top one as your business card;) It would be perfect.
Hope Paige can work on that being too tough on herself thing, it's good she realized her mistake though and was able, with your mom's help, to rectify it in the morning. Hope this week goes even better:)
Good luck!

Love all the beautiful images. Paige and my Jake sound alike. He punishes himself harder than we ever would.

Oh poor Paige...she sounds like she is so hard on herself. I hope you can eep up with things because we will miss you if you cannot:)

Fab photos...I especially love the one with the balloons. It sounds like Paige and Emma are a lot alike...total perfectionists!

Sweet, sweet photos of Miss. Paige. Hopefully you'll both get back into the groove of things and it will be a little smoother!

You are a wonderful role model and sometimes being hard on themselves is a good quality. My Elisabeth is terribly hard on herself and it has it's good sides and bad sides. The good side is that they usually accomplish what they set out to do and that is good! love you!

I've missed seeing pics of your beautiful Paige. What fun shots. I hope all is going well for you back in school and that you get plenty of R & R this weekend!
