It has been months since we’ve had an Aloha Friday. I was hoping to report that Arleigh had friends and things were awesome and she’s found her groove. Sadly, that wasn’t the case. My strong girl manned up and went back this morning even though she really, really didn’t want to. 

This is hard. It has to be Arleigh’s choice. She is super intimidated by the music and marching. I know she can do it but she is so unsure of herself right now. It’s not normal for her to not immediately excel at something. I’m not sure how hard to push or even if we should push. I don’t want her to quit and regret it later either. Sigh. 

So, no funny pictures today. I’m taking the rest of my tribe to finish off school physicals at appointments that range from 10-2:30. All day in a hospital isn’t my idea of Aloha Friday any more than it’s Arleigh’s. We are just going to have to fake it ’til we make it. So I’m going to pick my bag with snacks and toy and books and we’ll be off for the day pretending we’re back on our little island. 

Happy Aloha Friday y’all!
