Ada got her ears pierced! She and Emmerson have been going back and forth about this for a while and finally, Ada decided to go for it. She was put off for several years by Emmerson's experience. She got hers pierced when she was 6 or 7 and absolutely hated changing them in that difficult first month when the holes are stilling setting up. She would get hysterical and I would actually have to wrap her up in a blanket and hold her so Alicia could tent to the ears. But Emmerson has explained to Ada that she was WAY over the top with this and it is not that bad. These pictures are actually pre-earing. I wanted a before and after but did not seem to get any afters ....
Selfie with Emmerson. I took her to the York High School production of Les Mis. They did a nice job. Emmerson has been singing various songs now that are stuck in her head but can only keep repeating the same lines over and over because she doesn't know any of the other words.
And another new and exciting for Ada - her first organized soccer team! She is a proud member of the Lightning Bugs in the AYSO league. A tough go in her first match - 10 - 1 but she was still all smiles after the game. Very glad that she is able to do this and is enjoying it.
And witnessed this rarity the other Saturday night on the way to dinner - an actual caboose! I have a very intimate relationship with the trains of Chicago and have never seen a caboose on a train until this day.
So I had Alicia model in a few to pretty things up a bit.
