And recently, one of these:
And six of these:
Chuck was in her school play last winter, in the role of "Cathy" in "High School Musical." She had a great performance, after several weeks of hard work. She celebrated her 13th birthday in the spring with a sleepover party. She also decided that she was done with her long hair, and cut it short! She's now trying to grow it back.....She loves sailing with her Dad in the summer, and goes to all the regattas with him. She spent last winter in Pathfinders, including completing a winter camping weekend in a tent, something Mama has never done. She's anxiously looking forward to high school now, and has decided that she's going to audition for the school of the arts. Wish her luck!
Buddy celebrated his 2nd Birthday in April. He also started "school" towards the end of August, when Mama got a new job. He loves going and learning, and is very happy there. He is very happy to see his school in the mornings, but happy when we come pick him up at night! He chatters during the drive to and from school every day. He decided after four days at the new school that, being one of the few children still in diapers, he was done, and told me "No more diapers Mommy." It was a long haul, but he is fairly well trained now. He likes the chickens a lot, and the cows next door. Any farm animal he loves. He likes things done his way though, and has a very strong personality! He moved to a toddler bed in the winter, and will be moving to a twin bed shortly, so that his crib is free for the new baby. He loves sailing on the boat with his Dad, and gets upset when daddy goes to the boat without him!
