its starts from you, so believe what I know... you are amazing! After all I know you best and I see what you may not, so until you see it too, let me give you the words of encouragement you need, the hand to hold, and the shoulder to lean on! I love you both!
yeah, last year my friend Marie, (6th grade) NEVER spoke seriously i heard her speak like 12 times the whole year! now this year (7th) she speaks at least once or twice at lunch! maybe next year (8th) she'll be talking more! (no one can talk more than me!)
Wise words from Walt.... this will be what I tell myself in the days right before my kids take their big state test :)
