Raising ALL of our girls has been an amazing experience. Erika has been home almost 10 years, Sarah almost 11 years. More things have happened in that short time than I can write here.
They have overcome so much and are such joys.
And now.... A new right of passage. Erika is officially a DRIVER! She has worked so hard over the last year plus to drive. And now it has happened. :) With driving comes more responsibility of course. She has her car, a Taurus, and a job and will be covering her portion of the insurance.
Real life, brings real responsibility.
So, I believe my taxi days of taking her to college and picking her up are over. :(
I say that with a little sadness, but also a little joy, as I know she is thrilled, and it will take a lot off of my plate and free me up to work more in the shoppe.
Erika will also be the primary driver when Sarah starts college next year too. :)
And now it is time for Sarah to start working on HER permit to get her license.
They are growing up TOO FAST!
And just LOOK HOW!
Best friends in the orphanageAnd Best friends and Sisters now!
And look who has gotten so tall!!!!
(to be fair, Erika says she is slouching. Reality.... Sarah is 1/4 " taller. :)

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
