I had my Activity Days girls over today so we could celebrate Pioneer Day a bit more. They all pulled skirts and bonnets on over their clothes and we shook cream into butter and made button bracelets. We showed them how to pull dough flat into scones and then we fried them. We used the fresh made butter with a little cinnamon and sugar and they were amazing!
Crafty led them in a few more games and we read a couple of pioneer stories. I have such cute girls in my group, including Scout and of course we always add Baby Doll as an honorary member. Girls don't technically join our group until they are 8 years old and they age-out at 12.
On a different note, Drama Queen and I took Prima Donna to see the specialist today. He was 100% convinced that surgery was the only way to go given the possibility of instability in her ankle since she is so young. So we have to report at the hospital at 5:30 AM tomorrow. They are putting in a plate and a couple of screws. She can't have weight on it for several weeks while it heals although she has been cleared to head for Texas this weekend.
We got her one of those knee-scooters and she can get around much better on it. We are supposed to take our Girl Scout troop to Tuacahn tomorrow to see Beauty and the Beast. Drama Queen immediately offered to stay home with Prima Donna. Even though she loves the girls in the troop, she said she would much rather just take care of one of them than all the rest!
I was able to change their tickets so they can see the show in August when we return from Texas and we definitely won't leave until she is resting comfortably at home. I can't believe how stressful it is to leave my child under these circumstances, but I know Drama Queen is actually a much better nurse for Prima Donna than I am. I appreciate her so much!
If it's not too much trouble, would you mind praying for Prima Donna? She is nervous and not quite sure about tomorrow. Her mama would appreciate one too...
