School's out baby!

School is out for Savvy! I am so proud of her. She is making wise choices in the tough years of junior high. She is so pretty on the inside and out! She is already bored and school has only been out a week. She will be going to Cheer camp soon and to Teen Mania Extreme camp in July for a week.

In the meantime, she has decided that she wants to come to work at my office to make extra money. I told her that I do have some things she can do to help if she wants but she will need to treat it like a job and wear nice clothes and clock in and out (on my fake time sheet)and treat it like any other job, not moms place. I will pay her for the hours worked. She is doing 3-4 hours at a time and sleeping in and swimming the rest of the day. Today was her first day. She did really well and worked hard. She even was talking professional saying yes maam', no maam. It was cute. It was so cool having her there with me. This is a great way for her to earn money for the things that she wants, teaches her responsibility and I get to hang with her. Win, win. I hope it lasts. She is grwoing up way to fast and I will take what I can get!
I love you Savvy!

Sounds fun! I used to work in my Dad's law office when I was in high school. It was great to spend time with him.

That is AWESOME, and I love the picture. I can see the two of you in the office together. I don't know how you can manage to concentrate on work! You both can turn any situation into a fun one so I have no doubt work will be a blast! She is such a great kid!

We love you Savannah and we are SO proud of the beautiful girl that you are and the good head you have on your shoulders. I am so impressed by how well you handle things that come your way and after getting to talk with you when we were in Dallas I was so happy to see how you can find the good in situations that don't always go how you want them to. You take after your Mom SO much and I know you will grow up to be an amazing woman just like she is. I don't know how I got so lucky to have such incredible women in my life to call family but I thank God for you daily! Enjoy your money and make you some fat cash! LOL! Love you girls!!!!! MISS YOU LIKE CRAZY!

PS...I can't wait to see the new cheer pics and hear about camp, how fun! And hopefully we can snag you for a visit when you come back to KC in July! ;)
