  1. Any idea what the “still hoping” means that is at the top of the pages lately? Or is it to be revealed later in the diary? If so, I’ll wait – love a good genealogy mystery!

  2. Oh fiddle, NM. I’m reading in a small screen with a WP app. Didn’t see the rest of the posts right away. Think I figured it out! *lol* Now I wait to see if she makes it.

      It has to do with the getting on to the volleyball team :) I haven’t read ahead so I’m not sure if she made it or not!
