It used to be one of her favorite little songs to sing. We'd sing it together. Larry's band would perform it when she was at a gig. She'd hide her face, equal parts embarrassed and stoked that the band knew.
She's still my sunshine, when clouds are gray. That sunshine might come with an extra dose of sass but I'll take it.
We just finished conferences with Mrs. V (her new teacher this year). It is going even better than we hoped: Ella loves her and Mrs. V loves Ella. We had no idea what to expect after two years with the beloved Mr. H. Ella is thriving, excelling in all her classes. We haven't had one tear about school!!
She's still bashful and adamant about staying the course and not venturing out to try new things. (What an old soul!) We did get her to join Roz for a little basketball fun a while back with this rag-tag group of strong little women.
We've done a little 'bar hopping' together and some of the other band kids joined us.

Here's Ruby, getting all kinds of direction from Ella, the Kitten Whisperer. Ruby comes over once a week to check in on her babies. We only have to travel a few blocks to visit them after they leave us!!
The Brownies Troop is meeting regularly again and they had a blast together at the BIG Event.
So yeah, my little Sunshine is keeping us busy, and laughing and learning...because if I haven't said it already, third grade homework is no joke!
