Hair cuts for school!







I took them out for lunch after and they were sassy and beautiful! :)

then we dressed up for dinner :)
I noticed Gerri limping and found she has relapsed a bit with her latest growth spurt :(
good news, bad news. good news - growth spurt, bad news - relapse.
I took a picture to send to her Dr in Philly and we will be going back for casting again :(
I am padding her foot and we will not be driving down for some serial casting till October.
they start school right after labor day and she wants (I want ) her to start school being mobile and not in a cast and her wheelchair. three years home and she still couldn't let me know her foot hurt :(
