Carly-Q's Mom

Friends, we've been too quiet, too long. That changes now!

First things first:
Carly is 9 and in the 4th grade now. She is loving school, growing in confidence, experience, leadership and she is laughing every day. Carly holds an elected position at school, gets up & ready each day*, and strives to stay ahead of the academic schedule. She experienced girlscout camp for the first time, lost her FIRST baby tooth, and experienced her first TIA a week before Jer died at Cleveland Clinic. We went to camp, and she ziplined again, hung with Meghan again (who began her studies at EMERSON this past fall, just having returned from her 2 week stint in London. By herself. Pause for effect.)

I want to share more about these πŸ‘†πŸΌπŸ‘†πŸΌπŸ‘†πŸΌ events, and why they were so special. But time just keeps on zooming. 8-10 times faster than nearly everyone else on the planet. So there's that. #livelikecrazy
Couple pics of the past few months. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ§˜πŸΌβ€β™€οΈβœŒπŸΌ

Next: thank you’s.

Which came first- the chicken or the egg? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ₯šπŸ£πŸ€πŸ₯πŸ”πŸ“

The Children's Miracle Network Hospitals team thought this tiny clip would brighten our day. It made mom belly laugh... (OUT LOUD). BLOL?

Mr. Randy says "hi Carly!"

Thank you for brightening my day πŸ₯°

Oh I adore all these lovely ladies!!!!

Love it 😍

She makes my day whenever I see her, god bless you special little lady!

Hi Carly! You look beautiful! Boy oh boy, chickens sure do raise a lot of questions don’t they? 🧐 I wonder what they ask about us?? 🀣

Love her! And love the Tude with the eye rolling!!!

Awe:))). Made my day!! Love the πŸ™„ eyeroll.

Do you think the chicken was created sitting on a nest of eggs? Someone had to take care of the eggs

That sure is a tough one Carly...I'm not too sure either! I love the BLOL! πŸ˜‚

She is the cutest kid ever!
