Raine’s 12th birthday

Raine went shopping with her friends Catherine and Maya for her birthday and then enjoyed her favorite food… Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets.

Here are a couple pictures of Raine from the past couple months. She FINALLY figured out how to put in contacts so she doesn’t have to wear glasses any more!!!




Carter told Raine that she looked like a mom on a field trip when she came out in this outfit… I died laughing!

First days of school (COVID style)

School started on August 17 but the first three weeks were all virtual learning while the campuses put their safety measures in place— plexiglass dividers, hand sanitizer stations, separating desks, etc.

Raine had athletics in the morning in-person, then came home and got online.

Virtual school was awful and we couldn’t wait for in-person classes to start! The first day of in-person learning was September 8.
