For Matthew's birthday I was on spring break from work, so we kept the girls out of school that day so we could all be together (they had just had 2 weeks of spring break, but I had had to work...so backwards!!!) and we went to a really nice indoor pool. We had a great time. Then we went to Greta's kindergarten conference, where she showed us a lot of her work from the year.
The girls are really into THEIR outfits too, and have adopted the habit of setting their clothes out the night before, socks and everything! All laid out on the floor and ready to wear by bedtime. It is helpful too!!
The other night Therese was getting ready for bed, and all of the sudden appeared in the kitchen wearing a head lamp flashing light and looking very intent. I said to her, "Therese, are you looking for something?" and she said, without skipping a beat, "Yeah, my magic" and then proceeded to look under the heater. Those little moments are so fun!
Another special moment recently also happened at bedtime: Greta discovered that she had a loose tooth!!! She said "You know how I know? Cause when I touch it, it wiggles!!!" She soon found another one, and then was awake for 2 hours preoccupied by the whole thing! They're still in her mouth as she approaches her 6th birthday tomorrow.
We just watched the video Jenny and Dalton put together of Greta's birth--it's a treasure and always surprises me with it's ability to make me cry so suddenly! Anyway, it is so significant in the way it catches Matthew and I absolutely on the brink of the complete life-changing moment of having kids. Our home in the video looked so tidy, so spacious, so peaceful. Our faces so youthful, our countenances so light and airy. A lot has happened in 6 years. Wow!!! I can say this for sure, though, I sure am glad it's not 6 years ago right now, cause I'd been in labour for 18 hours and still had 4 more to go at this point!
