Our newest addition

She is a sweety. We named her petunia. She is now terrorizing the whole house. Good thing she is so cute with all that pug-ness

On the school front

How to make spelling fun? Let the kids squirt shaving cream all over the dining room table and trace their words in the foam. They had a BLAST :). Especially my very hands-on man-cub. I couldn't persuade a single one of them to break concentration and smile at the camera.

This was such a normal day for us. I have missed normal. Emma has struggled with vertigo since November. As you can imagine, reading and doing schoolwork while the room is spinning is pretty intense. But today it wasn't an issue, and I couldn't be more thankful. We played, all of us together, at the same time. All of my baby chicks in a clutch. It was peaceful, and we took total advantage of it. I can only hope it is a sign of things to come.

Down the Rabbit Hole....

The girls were in a production of Alice in Wonderland. They did terrific. Emma was the Cheshire cat and Chloe was the Dodo Bird. I was so proud of both of them.

They were both so very nervous going in. But they studied hard and learned all their lines. I couldn't have been more proud.

Especially for Emma. She is recently diagnosed with Meniere's disease. It makes her dizzy with vertigo and nausea. She had to give up dance because of it, and I know that made this play all the more important for her.
