Rites of Passage

Tomorrow is the long-awaited 8th Grade Cotillion! Every girl in the class will be presented in this ceremony marking the end of middle school and the transition to high school, and then they will celebrate with a school dance. There have been rehearsals, etiquette lessons, and curtsy practice, and Georgia and friends have been so excited, I'm sure there's a countdown calendar out there somewhere. It will be a special night for a special group of girls, and we are all looking forward to it!

It's funny that the timing of this transition coincides with Georgia's transition to the survivorship program, which she'll be in until she transitions to ... college. Somehow I think that's going to be here before we know it! She's had another great school year, made even more new friends, and, as always, impressed and inspired us with her attitude and fortitude. As a surprise, she got her first phone - one that she's been wanting, although she's never complained about using my old one for the last year - and she was thrilled! She had decided on sunny yellow long ago, and luckily, much searching turned up ONE within 100 miles. Meant to be, I'd say.

She also got her cabin list for camp today, so it was pretty much like Christmas.

We've been working through another change around Peachy Keen HQ - transforming the playroom into "the study hall." Just perfect for the young ladies who love everything to do with school and projects and reading for hours - not so easy for the mommy who sees little girls playing dolls and dress-up in every corner of the room. But change is good, right? We have enjoyed making it happen together, and those two sweethearts even humored me with one last picture before we said goodbye to the playhouse:

A restaging of our moving announcement from 2005:

I can't wait to see the memories they make in the "new" room. Speaking of memories, we still owe y'all a recap of the blood drive, art show, and, of course, fundraising updates. Some things never change! : ) Stay tuned, and have a peachy weekend, y'all!
