Be Back Soon
My daughter is having surgery on Thursday in Portland, so we're heading out tomorrow so she can have her pre-op check up. She's feeling good, which is HUGE, because a month ago she was incredibly stressed out. I thought one of the main culprits was that she was worrying about this surgery. But these last few days she's been giddy with excitement. Probably part of it is that she gets to miss school. And I think the idea of staying in a hotel with a pool the first night is also very exciting.
Her classmates wrote her notes today and her teacher made a book out of them for Olivia to take to the hospital (thank you, Miss Bowman!). Second graders are awesome, that's all I can say. Here's a sampling:
"Olivia good luck with your surgy I'll miss you. Oh yeay will you be my friend?" -- Wyatt
"I hope your surgery goes well. Thank you for being such a good friend. Why did the elefint cross the road? To crush the cars. Have a great time swiming. Your the best friend I could ever have. Have a good time. I'll miss you very, very, very, very, very, very, very much!" -- Lily
"Olivia you were a good friend to me. I will miss you. I wish you were not in the hospero good loak ok I am thing of you." -- Yurely
"Hope you have a good time swimming Olivia and remember you are as bright as the sun. And you are so good to me and I hope you get better and you be good girl! Have a wonderful time I love you Olivia." -- Savannah
"We miss you good luck Olivia. We care about you. We hope you get beter soon Olivia. We wish you luck Olivia. Why couldn't the spaceship land on the moon? Because it was already full." -- Luke
In other, less-important news, I got all our plants and bulbs in the ground today. Yippee! I can drive away tomorrow morning with a clear conscience.
Hope you all have a great rest of your week. I'm off to finish packing....
