A Cupcake Girl
Well, we went to the first homeschool Cupcake meeting this afternoon. OMG, Zhara had a blast. Total blast. They did manicures, and made popcorn balls, and pulled taffy. They laughed, and ran, and played outside in the dark. It was wonderful. She is making friends. Really sweet ones. Ones that understand her, and what her life is like, and some of them are even girly girls just like her. She is excited, and so am I. These are several of the same girls that we see at the American Girls Club and a few other activities through E.D.U.C.A.T.E, so I feel like we are really really forming a good group for her to bond with. We have to miss the December meeting, which is an outing, so we are thinking about perhaps inviting the Cupcakes over for a holiday afternoon tea or something for fun in December. That way Zhara can have a get together with the Cupcake girls before Christmas. I am just so happy for her. She didn't want to leave, was calling them by their names, and really having a delightful time, just like any other 8-year-old girl would. And I talked a bit with some of the other moms, which was nice, as well.
