Yaks had a soccer game, and Boo had swim practice in the morning. I listened to conference while watching Boo swim. Afterwards, Boo and I went on a much-anticipated date to the store to buy a training bra (for her, not for me). Yes, it's THAT time, I can't believe it! After her well-check at the pediatrician, and my expressed worry that Boo had a tumor, turns out she's just developing. Duh, Amy. The doctor agreed that a little "support" might help with the discomfort and sensitivity she's been experiencing. She got to pick and try on a pack of trainers, and proudly brought them home in her little bag. She's excited to be growing up! We also got a cheesecake and I noticed that they had all their house plants 50% off of what they were earlier in the week, so you'll notice the forest in the back seat!
I can't believe we're entering these waters already! A nice book we were recommended and checked out from the library was "The Care and Keeping of You" (American Girl). Tasteful illustrations, explanations and lots of fun and interesting information for the TWEEN girl. Covers development, menstruation, general hygiene, etc. We read a chapter each night and had a good Q&A on the subjects. Boo felt really special having the "girl" time.

|Boo read this sign (GUESS THE COMBINED WEIGHT) then said (in all seriousness), |
"This calls for some estimating and rounding!"
Those college kids at the table got a kick out of it.
