Yesterday and Today. . .
























































Yesterday was pretty low key. We went to church and played in the yard. Sara had bought the kids some balls to bounce on. It took Grace a bit to figure it out. . .Miriam was a pro since she has one in Chicago. . .but it didn't take long and the two were bouncing all over the place. After eating pasta with red sauce on it the kids were in desperate need for a bath. . .we accomplished that in shifts since we thought four in 1 small tub was pushing it. Today we went to the mall, played on the playground and rode the carousel. Miriam and Grace happened to have similar dresses so they were "twins" today. Then while Sara fixed dinner I took the kids outside to play in the pool. . .this was a huge hit with limited fighting. . .we have been struggling to explain the concept of sharing to two 3 year olds. . .not an easy concept. Overall we have been doing well and having fun.
