Hosea will be 2 in a couple of days. Therese got into the Montessori kindergarten at our public school here--it was a lottery she won and now Greta will go to the top of the wait list for her grade, and Hosea will automatically get in when he's in kindergarten!! The girls are into Katy Perry songs and dancing, Hosea will even sing parts of "Roar"--elementary school is exposing them more and more to popular culture. Greta and I are going to a Girl Guides and Moms camp next weekend! When Greta studies her spelling words a couple of times a week she gets 100%'s on her tests. She's reading (when did that happen???!!!) Hosea loves to kiss his toys, or have them kiss him or things, and he sometimes feeds them too. Whenever he notices anyone around him is upset he'll suggest they have milk "Maow" he'll say. And anytime he's in distress "Maow" is what he needs ASAP. They say cute and sweet and hilarious things every day, too many too remember. They are sweet with each other, so flexible and adaptable and friendly, creative and imaginative and self directed and assertive and empathetic. But it is so tiring. Time to myself is scarce. And when I get it I'm exhausted.
As I mentioned earlier, they enjoy using the camera. Well this week Greta dropped it and it broke. We'll see if it can be fixed, or if I have a replacement lying around somewhere. Hosea is adorable in all of his soon to be two-ness, so I'm going to need to get some more pictures of the kids for the next post!!
