Ohhhhhh, but it will be sooooo worth it in the end:)

In the meantime THAT STINKS!!!

Do you go down to the school with Ella for dinner? That's pretty cool.

Tom, Laura & Ella said...

yeah, i usually either bring him lunch or we'll go get something to eat together. At least I get to see him for a few hours, right! :) Poor Tom only gets to see Ella for about an hour a day!

How far away is his school?

I need your address. James came home from school today and asked, "Mom where does someone in our family live that's the farthest away?" I said..."Uhhh, that's definately Laura!!!" Email it to me when you get a chance. Thanks.
