The Family that Grooms Each Other Stays Together!

We had Lilee over (she'll be 2 at the end of May) on Saturday. We picked her up at 11:00 a.m. and she was going to spend the night. At 3:00, after waking up from her nap, she was sitting on my lap and I found lice in her hair - EWE! I brought her back home and began the battle. After all, while I had been setting up her portable crib in my room, Lillee and Morgan had been rolling all over my bed! UGH! So I proceeded to vacuum everywhere, including the couch, and Kevin cranked up the water heater to 150 degrees and I washed everything twice and dried it in the hottest drier. Morgan was actually okay with her toys being bagged up and put in the garage for 3 weeks (they recommend 2, but we're not taking ANY chances!). Kevin isn't worried about it, of course! So now it's a waiting game begins - to see if we were able to fend off an attack - and Kevin looked through my head tonight, but didn't find anything, and of course I've been itching since Saturday at 3:00! The nurse at Morgan's school offered to check my head, and I may take her up on that!

Boxing Scores

So Hilary was able to defeat Kevin once again - in the first round! Kevin claims that Hilary is somehow cheating, and knows some special cheat that he doesn't! Hilary had him on the ropes! Hilary 2 - Kevin 1

Cooking Class

So I forgot to mention that Kevin & I took a cooking class last week! It is considered a recreational cooking class, so it was just fun, and we had a blast! We made a breakfast strudel with smoked salmon and sourdough pancakes - breakfast for dinner! It is the first time we have strayed from the traditional "dates" of dinner and a movie, and it was fun! I had signed us up for another class in March, but it is working with tofu - which Kevin isn't too hip on - even though I've slipped it in to pad thai and he never even knew!

Catch Up

Sorry it's been so long! We have been busy! Not with anything that is ultra exciting, just general life stuff.

We got a Wii, and we are ALL loving it! Morgan is pretty good, and has beat her sister twice in boxing! Hilary beat Kevin in their first boxing match, but Kevin had to have a rematch and one - so it's a tie, for now!

Last week the girls only had one day of school. We had conferences with their teachers. Both are doing great! Devyn's teacher just raves about how nice she is, and gets along so well with EVERYONE - he says there isn't anyone in class she doesn't get along with! I am so amazed at how far Devyn has progressed with her writing! It was definitely a weak spot, and now she is really blossoming! Morgan's teacher is just amazing, and since Morgan has met all of her core requirements for kindergarten, she is giving her first grade work - which is keeping Mo interested and loving school. In fact, Morgan told me just this morning that she LOVED her teacher! And so lucky for us, it is a looping class, so Morgan will get to stay with that same teacher, they will all just be first graders.

We will try to be better at posting!

Hugs to all!
