She's Home Safe !!

WOOHOO! My little girl is home! She looks a bit taller, alot tanner, and her hair looks lighter from sun streaks!

When she left here, she was frightened of the plane trip home. I told her that wasn't for almost 3 wks and she shouldn't worry about it . Well, by the time Uncle Charley and Aunt Tammy put her on the plane yesterday she was excited and ready to come home.

Thank goodness that Uncle Charley took some pictures of her and sent them home on a CD because she left her camera there with them:))
She came home with a piece of REAL Colorado gold in a bottle, a box of beautiful rocks, natural magnets, new pjs, a new shirt, shorts and assorted other thing a majigs...All in all she had a great time and is ready to go back next year.

She said she got to ride a horse, a very sweet mare that was blind in one eye, and that stopped when she got tangled up in some brush so that Nicole wouldn't fall off she said:)) She also went on a hike about a mile or so up the mountains and she said sleeping out side was ok.
It was holiday week, so every night they had dinner that went along with one of the big holidays, like all the trimmings for Thanksgiving and so on.

It all ended with the fourth of July, and the skits. She said for her and her cabin mates they redid the Pledge of Allegiance. She said they did a pledge to their cabin instead. She forgot the written words ( they r with Uncle Charley).

Enjoy these pictures!

Wow... she does NOT look 9 to me. She looks so much older! Glad she made it back safely -- and way to parent on the plane worries.

She is definitely 9! This past year in school, she was the second tallest in her class. She is currently around 4'8". My MIL is around an even 5' so Nicole is catching up to her very fast.
At one point they wore the same size shoe...
