The Best Thing Ever

happened today. Holly got the all clear yesterday to begin eating regular food. Not wasting anytime, I sat Holly in her chair, got out the only baby friendly solid thing in the house: Corn Pops. (Main ingredient: corn syrup, always a bonus for Holly Marie!)

I almost heard the angels sing, when she ate the pops without choking and gasping, no gagging or stopped up nose. It was so beautiful! Bill and I sat beside her at the table and worked on fractions and spelling.

And if that weren't exciting enough, Lee Allison completed his math assignment in the most legible, unbelievably neat handwriting I have ever seen. Ever.

Oh yes, I am grateful today.
