Well, Miss Madelaine, just shy of her 4th birthday, has learned to ride her bicycle! She was determined to keep up with her big sister and that's some powerful motivation. :) She was so excited to tell her Daddy when he got home and had to show off her new skills. I'll try to get a pic up of her tomorrow.

Well, that tooth finally came out and she pulled it herself!

We've signed all three kids up for gymnastics. They're having lots of fun and our summer is busy already. Russian lessons from our neighbor in exchange for piano lessons. Mom and Dad will be coming up end of July. Dad's having some dental work done that hopefully will be complete by the time they leave.

I'm doing massive de-cluttering of my house. Getting up early helps keep ahead of the game (and the kids). Laundry once a day is a must or I get behind. The cats get extra time with me. Only down side is I like staying up later after the kids are in bed and now I'm so tired I'm going to bed half and hour after they do. I guess my schedule will get tweaked a bit. I made a chore calendar and a meal calendar on google in addition to my regular calendar. It's nice. Noel likes knowing what's going to be for dinner and I can plan ahead and see what needs to be defrosted.
