School: Day Two Plus a Heart Update

It is the second day of school. Rehm had a doctor's appointment and was not with us this morning. I needed to drive Charlotte to school because I needed go straight to work after dropping her off. When I explained we would be driving and not walking she immediately asked to be dropped off in the car line. I assured her that her sisters and I would be happy to park and walk her to her class. She refused! Yep, second day of school and she is too big to be walked in. It makes me a little sad, but at the same time makes me chuckle. That is Charlotte. Miss Independent! Oh, and Miss Stubborn! I just can't imagine where those traits came from.

Rehm's appointment was with the cardiologist. We got a good report and his aortic root has not grown in the last year. The rest of his heart is catching up! We don't have to go back again until next summer. We get to wait a whole year! We've been going every six months and this time last year were talking about having to start medication to slow down the growth. The good news is for now we don't have to do any of those things. We may at some point in the future, we may not, only God knows. But today was good.

I wonder how Miss Independent is enjoying her second day of Kindergarten? I'm sure I'll here all about it when I get home this evening.
