How is Veronica doing, in March? This morning she told me she is NOT GOOD. She is always SO TIRED. We are going for her well child check up (11 months after her 7th birthday, whatever) next month and I am going to see what is what. Maybe she has a problem, maybe that's why she is so tired. But she doesn't seem tired, she doesn't fall asleep all the time or anything. I don't know. We are all giving up sweets and dessert for Lent and last night we were talking about it and Veronica said she is really going to try to "eat clean". Where she hears this, I don't know! She does have several friends at school who are gluten free, so maybe that's it. I am of two minds on it, on the one hand, I know she'd have more energy and be happier if she wasn't always fretting about her size and clothes, but on the other hand, I want her to be happy with herself exactly as she is. I don't know.
She is doing very well in school, well in speech therapy, well in Tae Kwon Do, she did get her yellow belt and even though sometimes it's 'hard' because she doesn't always 'keep good form', she is going to finish Tae Kwon Do through the year and we'll see if she does it next year. Next year she can play kickball and maybe she'll want to but I don't know. It will be easier if Spring ever comes because then we can at least go for walks with the dog, to the store, etc.
Veronica went to a birthday party last weekend, her friend Lillie. She bought her a pretty sweater because she has admired her sweaters in the past, and she was thrilled to see her wear it the next day! We were at this Blessing Cup thing that we do for First Communion. I personally think it is a ridiculous thing but I did it last year with Maria and I did it this year with Veronica and in three years I'll do it with Felicity, so I better get over it. She makes her First Communion next month, April 29. My sister bought three dresses on excellent sale and I am hopeful the one she likes will work still, next month. We are going to get shoes here soon, it's all exciting!
Here are some cute pictures!
