Jackson begged me for these carrots. He was so excited to get them and bring them to the table. He even ate a couple which quite frankly I was shocked at. But this was the look he gave them after a short amount of time.
Here I was shocked to find that Madison can draw a person. Once again I never taught her how to do this. At our parent teacher conference a couple weeks ago the teacher said that most kids at this age are expected to be able to draw a head with legs that come right off the head and that's about it. The teacher was thrilled that her people have bodies and even fingers and toes. Since this picture was taken she is now adding lots of hair to her people.
Last week at swim class we stayed after class and swam quite a bit with their classmate Noah. They had so much fun playing together. Madison and Jackson are able to touch the ground in the shallow end and once they discovered that they really started to play around. They even started to jump into the water from the side all on their own! They're getting more comfortable with getting their faces wet.
After we were done swimming we went into the locker room and I asked them if they wanted to take a shower. They've never done that so they were very excited.
Last weekend we had a birthday party for our friend Sabine who we met at the grocery store last summer. Her cake was soooo cute.
After 11 years it was time to say goodbye to our very beat up couch and over-sized chair and welcome a new couch and love seat. With the same amount of seating space the pieces are smaller over all making the room look much bigger. Plus the style of the new ones are more tailored and straight rather than soft and squishy. (that's the old one in the middle of the room making way for the new one)
