The beauty that is our life...

I am so proud of Miss Kat. She is doing beautifully in school, she had her first band concert (she plays guitar) and her drama teacher says that she has never seen a student with such an expressive face and voice. But most of all, I am proud of the faithful young woman she is becoming. She went to her room today and prepared our Family Home Evening lesson completely on her own. She read about Hannah and Samuel and taught us about faith. She also has been working diligently on her Personal Progress, and is always pushing us to attend the temple more. She is a shining star with a strong testimony, and I am so thankful to have her in our lives.

Nothing left to say...

I so rarely blog anymore because I feel as though I have nothing left to say. Miss Kat is perfectly typical. She goes to school, she has friends, she loves Girl Scouts, she helped babysit today at church, she wants to know why more people didn't join the book club at school...Her hearing loss rarely comes up in more than a routine way.

"Did you switch your batteries?"
"Remember to synch your FM"
"If it is too noisy at the carnival, I'll ask them to speak up"
"I'll go see if they will turn on the captions for me"

Things like that.

School is going beautifully, Miss Kat is doing well. She really liked Health last semester, but also like Drama. I think she will love Family and Consumer Sciences! Social Studies has been the hardest class for her, there is a ton of vocabulary to remember, but she is beginning to bloom as a writer.

I did not see this as our life 10 years ago when we found out about her hearing loss, and I certainly couldn't imagine it 7 years ago when she got her first CI. Amazing.
