E scores!

I Kan Haz Kar Nao?

Miss E will be 13 in less than 2 months. Her latest hand x-ray places her bone age at 10.5 years or so. This is good news. Her bones aren't fused yet. If you know us at all, you know that Miss E's petite size has been a source of concern. And there were so many things other kids can do as they grow that she couldn't do. Like drive the Walkabout Farm John Deere, which requires at least 50lbs of weight in the seat to keep the engine running. So one can't stand up and run it. One has to be able to reach the pedals while seated. And one has to be over 50lbs. Miss E was 50lbs or less for the longest time. It was the most amazing moment for us to watch her today. And the smile on her face, the concentration on her driving, as she did this for the very first time ever. She has undergone a rite of passage, passed through a gate....
