Twinkle Twinkle

Time is just ticking away, and 2013 will soon be over! As Georgia moves further and further out of treatment, her days are filled with school and friends and fun - everything *but* doctors and meds and cancer. And we are thrilled! She is currently gearing up for the middle school play, which will debut this week at the One Act Play Festival. She has been "locked-in" at the school library the last two Friday nights for sleepovers with the NJHS and the student ambassador program. She's finishing up another straight-A six weeks and is looking forward to a college trip to Dallas in a few weeks. And on Wednesday, we'll be attending a meeting together to talk about - gulp - high school! It's hard to believe that the time has come, but we are so thankful for the incredible education and opportunities she is receiving at the Ann Richards School.

At the start of the year, one of her teachers asked to learn more about her students from their parents, and this is what I wrote:

As for describing my daughter in a million words or less, I can narrow it down to one: brilliant. And I mean that in far more ways than the obvious. Yes, she is smart, but she is also bright. She has a light about her that reflects her kind and peaceful nature. She is a gifted artist and writer whose creativity and humor shine through her work. And when faced with challenges, she is a beacon of strength and grace.

We couldn't be more proud of Georgia, and we couldn't be more sure that she was born to be an Ann Richards Star.

Shine on, sweet girl
