New Couches....

Finally, the long-awaited sectional has arrived. We ordered it a month ago and got a fantastic deal... so we haven't complained about how long it's taken. But a month?


The girls LOVED them. We were actually kind of worried about getting them in the house. The bigger piece wouldn't fit through the door... so we took it off. We managed to get everything downstairs (by "we" I of course mean the mover guys) and the girls were very... "helpful"...

You can see what a perfect fit they are... Yes, after a month of waiting and all that hassle getting them down the stairs, they are now perfectly positioned to somersault onto right from the stairs.

(not sure why this one didn't rotate... normally blogger is pretty awesome that way...)

So I of course, being the good friend that I am, invited my sweet friend Becki over to help me rearrange my furniture. She was a great sport and totally got into it. It might have helped that by helping me she got out of putting her kids to bed.

Ahhh.... much better. It's such a cozy little room now!

Avril's Last Day of Preschool

I was right. She's not old enough to go to school. She's my baby. At least for one more year, she's my baby. For a multitude of reasons we opted to home preschool her this year. (Which, by the way, was a pretty difficult decision-- I really love her preschool!)

Honestly, I never thought I'd see the day when I'd want to homeschool, but I can handle a year of preschool. Plus, I like her an awful lot. We're gonna take a lot of stress off of all of us and call it chill this year.

Avril's First Day of Preschool

Isn't she a little doll? I love this kid. She's getting so grown-up!
She could be in kindergarten this year, but we opted to hold her back till next year so she and Xandri can be closer in grades. I think she'll enjoy being the oldest in her class...
will this make her bossy?

That remains to be seen.

In any case, I don't think my baby's old enough to be going to school. Nevermind that she's already done preschool. She's just not.

Babies Aren't Humans

Avril (praying): "And please help Roman to act like a human..."

Xandri (pretending): "I'm not a baby anymore, I'm a human."
