Daniel let me know that my blog has become boring lately. Not enough posts according to him. :(

My apologies. It's been busy around here. The kids are off school today, but Daniel has to work. I'm hoping to recruit them to help with some projects for a few hours today. They've done little in the way of anything other than playing all weekend so far. It's time to pay the piper.

J has a birthday coming up soon, and has decided on a weekend at Great Wolf Lodge as her birthday activity/party. It will be our first time there, and she picked out the room type that she wanted (cave theme kids area), and is pretty excited about it. I'm sure we will all enjoy it. She pondered the whole friend party vs family outing vs cash payout birthday decision very carefully this year. Somehow I ended up with the most expensive option. She's worth it. :)

Care to revisit her last two birthday celebrations?
J turns 6,
J turns 5 part 1.
J turns 5 part 2.

In other news...Bella declared "resort" to be her favorite word last night over dinner. She had some great explanation of why too. Xander has decided that since the nursery at church now has male and female teachers (not just female anymore) it is the happening place to be. He runs in there and jumps into his teacher's arms and doesn't look back. Disturbingly, he has absolutely no fear of any men at all. He will go to complete strangers, but not women. L is adjusting to her Sunbeam class. She does a lot of talking about how big she is. She told Daniel that she was going to read him a book last night and did a pretty good job retelling the Very Hungry Caterpillar.

We've got preschool at our house tomorrow, and I've still got some things to prepare. I had better get my butt out of bed and do it. Hope y'all had a good weekend. Thanks for all the feedback on the dress post. I'm still weighing the input. :)

I actually spent some time in Xanders's nursery class yesterday and he won't leave Brother Venagas' side! I think a birthday at a lodge sounds like a great idea- good pick J!
