As long as I'm giving updates on people I've written about on the blog, I thought you'd like to know that little Rachel is doing very well. She, her mom and her twin brother Jack occasionally visit the library and Mike and I just ran into them at the store the other day.
She has started 1st grade and just got a fancy new "school leg" so she can feel better about wearing skirts and dresses. I'm so excited by this because the girl loves to accessorize...feminine pinks and floral purples, shiny strings of beads with coordinating headbands. Every time I see Rachel, she is like a little fashionista with her jewelry and hats. So now, instead of wearing pants all the time, she has other options.
She's braver than I was at her age.
