Back from the West Coast

Here's some of what's been happening:

  • My husband and C and D are just back from an 8-day trip to the West Coast.  Baby T and I spent the week eating dinner at Panera's and doing this and that.  Baby T also enjoyed a huge leap verbal leap forward that is impressing everybody.  She now uses words to request things, a big step forward for her.  She's using more and more all the time.  She also knows a lot of animals (her current passion) and knows what a number of them say.
  • C went to a half-day babysitter training course at the YMCA and got a card from them and $20 from her mother and father.  In future, I'm planning on having both kids do First Aid courses there and C will probably do the junior lifeguard class next year.  The YMCA is really great for these life skill type classes.  They also have a teen physical training course that looks good that both kids could do next year.    
  • C is thinking about saving up for an embroidery machine.  
  • C turned in her reading sheet at the library and got her goodie bag, but was disappointed by her haul.
  • My husband has been under the weather, but is feeling better.  
  • Baby T is crazy about kitties.
  • We've finally starting having 100+ temps and are baking.
