Weekly Wrap #1

 Since there are no more Quick Takes : ( let's go with a Weekly Wrap of all things...

The littles got to enjoy another tub and J was thrilled and H wasn't. I do feel like the littles miss out on stuff we did with our bigs when they were little so I try to relish in the little moments.

Lady C can be super great with H

The flashlight was being shown off to H

It was super great. Too bad they are a little pricey.

Yes I had to go out and get white feather just so C could make her turkey a chicken.

Eight is Great - for M

 This week M turned 8!

The big bad eight. 

Despite being definitely one of the big kids, she can often be found playing with Lady C or carrying around J - who is a bit denser than she is - so that makes us a little nervous. 

She loves to play soccer and was rewarded with a spot on the County All Star team this fall - she is thrilled! Swimming is not as much her thing but her competitive spirit really helps her out and having a load of friends at practice also helps. 

Last week she came home with the Little Flower award from school because she puts others before herself. I told her that was way more important to us than any straight A report card that comes home. 

We were recently remind she’s our best ascetic and will boycott dinner if she doesn’t like what we are having - most notably she won’t eat soup on the sole basis that it is soup - that doesn’t apply to chili though.
