Maria is doing just great. She got her ears pierced the day before her birthday and counted down six weeks until she could switch earrings. She has now worn two different pair and I told her she should stay in them for a while.
She is getting ready to make her first communion in April. This weekend she has to go to church early to make a blessing cup, which, whatever. She also has to decorate a banner, so, the Religion teacher said, we can decorate the church and it looks nice. If you want it to look nice, I want to say, don't have a bunch of eight year olds make banners, ha! Also, I think the church already looks pretty nice, because of the presence of GOD and all, but whatever, I am not in charge.
She is doing very well in school, she is still kind of freaking out about every damned thing but I think maybe she is getting better about that. We are reading Harry Potter (the first one) to her and Veronica before bed and that's been really fun. We are flying right along in it, and I can tell they like it. It's nice how they fall asleep with me reading to them, well, Maria sometimes pretends to fall asleep but it does make her really sleepy, unlike those damned electronics, which just jack her up.
Here's some cute pictures.
