Bus lift

Right after we got the stair lift installed in the house, I got a call from Edda's teacher suggesting that we use Edda's wheelchair and the lift on the school bus to get Edda to and from school safely. I hadn't even really thought about it, but of course, it makes perfect sense. We have always had Edda walk up and down the bus stairs with a lot of assistance, but she could do it most of the time (up especially, down not so much). Now Edda weighs so much, it is very difficult for us to manage her safely up and down the bus stairs.

I suppose this is a milestone of sorts, I had my camera ready and took photos, but it is a little heartbreaking at the same time.

Ok, I know when you took these, you probably didn't think they would be cute photos because you were conflicted about the weird milestone part. But let me assure you that they are adorable, not just because of Edda's supercute new 'do (although that helps). I guess I have gotten kinda used to seeing Violet on the lift, so it doesn't bother me as much now--except when I see people in the cars waiting behind the bus giving us pitying looks. But V sure is cute! And so is Edda! Congrats on all the big changes.
