Our weekend visit to Fayetteville has gone better than I expected. I could tell Kayla was overwhelmed at first meeting a bunch of new people because she got really quiet but by the time Keith Urban sang his last song at Razorback Stadium Thursday night, she was dancing with Isabella and part of the family. Yesterday we spent a girls' day out with my 11-year-old niece Carly. We went birthday shopping and to see Kung Fu Panda. Carly and Kayla couldn't get enough of each other. I am overwhelmed at times with the responsibility placed on me for this child but the more time I spend with her, the more I am in awe of her. She is such a great kid--very well-behaved and can entertain herself. She is obsessed with the Twilight book right now and spends all her free time reading it. We slept in today and we'll go to Isabella's dance recital tonight and then head back to Little Rock and move her in tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a big day for both of us.
It's Been Awhile
