To answer Robin's comment on my last post, all went well. Leslie got put into a group of girls that she tentatively said were, "Nice.". She filled me in on all sorts of amusing things that happened during the evening. And she hasn't said anything yet about not going back. So far, so good.
I'm still praying, though. As a homeschooler, seeking out social contacts is more of a challenge. She has one friend here her age, a couple friends two years younger . . that's really it. And none of those has she really connected with. I know -- it just takes time.
Now, one of these days, I'll need to examine why yesterday evening brought out such a strong reaction in me. Hmmm.
