Day 293 - Parent Conference...

This evening, we had a parent conference with Hillary Ashton's teacher. Her teacher confirmed what we thought, "Hillary Ashton has fit right in. She came in the first day like she had always been here." Man, that makes a mama feel good!

After the conference, Hillary Ashton gave us a tour of her school. I WISH I would have had a video camera of that girl! She struted down the halls, snapping her fingers (that's what she does when she feels extra spunky) as she told us about how things work around her school and introducing us to people we saw along the way. My favorite introduction was to the librarian or as Hillary Ashton put it, "the boss of the whole library." Haha!

When she started school, they sent home a lunch schedule. She NEVER wanted to order her lunch last year, but this year she was open to hearing the choices :o) She decided that she would order two days in October...the chicken nugget day and the pizza wedge day. She has asked me EVERYDAY since she decided to order if it was the 21st yet (that was her first order date). Haha! You should have seen her face this morning when I told her "yes!" She was pumped. She said, "I can't wait. When you order, you give a lady some money and then you go into a little room and I am not sure what happens in there, but you come out with food. I am going to see what's going on in that room today." Haha! She told me this afternoon that now she "knows how the whole school works." That girl cracks me up!

She snaps her fingers when she's spunky. Uhm, you know she GETS that from somewhere. The apple...the tree...I'm just sayin'....
