Our week in review
Thomas decided that the laundry basket made a much more comfortable bed.
(and while I didn't get a picture of it, the next night I couldn't find Kathryn anywhere. I checked next to Reilly. I checked Marie's crib. I went into the boys' room. No Kathryn anywhere. I knew she HAD to be in the house, but where could she hide? I rechecked all the beds and was just about to turn some lights on when I saw something out of the corner of my eye... the top of her head... sticking out of the laundry hamper! I got her out of there and said, "sweetie, why on EARTH were you sleeping in the HAMPER?" She just gave me a sleepy smile and said, "Because every kid likes to be found and picked up by their mom or dad and put into bed...")
She won't let me get a good picture of it, but Grace has her first tooth. She handled it pretty well, actually... no fuss, no fever, no excessive drooling (blech)... just a "ta-da!" and there it was. So, no official tooth picture... but I offer you an official "first time in the swing" picture instead. (She is just the cutest little thing!)
And finally, Kathryn had a lifelong dream realized on Friday -- she started horseback riding lessons! (She has been saving all the money she's received from Christmases and birthdays from very generous friends and relatives). I wanted to cry -- she was just sooooooooo happy!
