Go No. 2!

Our Cub Scout Pack had it's annual Pinewood Derby on Wednesday night. Jonathan insisted on designing his car to look like a No. 2 pencil. With a lot of help from dad and the midnight hour, it came out so AWESOME! He did all the painting himself, and I helped with the weights. Overall he had a great race, coming in the top 4, which qualifies him for the district Pinewood Derby. I hear those are pretty brutal, filled with "Derby Dads" (you know, kind of like Pageant Moms). We'll probably skip that event, and just call the whole thing worth it!

Home Renovations

It has become apparently clear to us that having four children requires a lot of extras, not only mentally and emotionally, but physically. This is why we have decided to convert one of the attic spaces into a bedroom and bathroom. Emily is the lucky recipient of this new space because, let's face it, girls need their own bathroom. Also, once being an adolescent girl, which Emily will soon be, I would have loved a space to call my own and to hide all my "girly" paraphernalia. Hopefully the renovations will be finished by summer. We'll keep you posted.

What is He Thinking?

Whenever it warms up outside I too get the urge to strip down to the bare essentials - underwear and shoes. Dylan apparently has grasped this concept as well. It usually does not end well when a mother finds a trail of clothes leading to a partially dressed little boy swinging on the playset and collecting the mail. But, in this case I just laughed and grabbed the camera. Kids are clueless and I love it!
