Vivian's first pep rally.


Vivian's teacher sent me this picture of Vivian at her first high school pep rally on Friday. The cheerleaders don't seem to be rallying much pep in her!

Thank you for all of your sweet messages about Vivian's transition to high school. She still seems to be managing remarkably well, although she did have one incident last week where she stood on her chair when it was time to work. {sigh}

Vivian and me eating dinner in Wyoming

My mother reminded me of another funny Vivian story from our time in Wyoming:

When we're visiting at her house, my mom prepares fabulous breakfasts for the kids every morning (pancakes, French toast, eggs, etc.). One day she had fixed fried grits* which are my favorite. I sat next to Vivian at the table, and fried grits are evidently also a hit with Vivian because she ate hers very quickly. I, on the other hand, was savoring each bite and had about half my serving left when Vivian finished hers. She pointed to my plate and said to me, "May I borrow yours?"

*Fried grits are made from leftover grits that have been spread onto a plate and refrigerator. You cut a serving of the grits, dip it in egg and fry in a frying pan.

I love that she asked so nicely to borrow your grits. Cute!

Aww. In the pep rally photo Vivian looks like a girl who needs a hug. LOVE that V wanted to "borrow" your grits. Very diplomatic way to put it!

Love the pep rally photo. And I always love your Wyoming photos. I am from the South and never heard of Fried Grits. My hubby would love them!
