September 20 - Two of our most favoretest people came to visit us today! And the girls gave Miss Potpourri lots of new bling to wear to dinner.
September 21 - We had an awesome morning exploring the low-tide beach. I loved watching Daniel jump back after we told him to turn over a rock and he was surprised at the amount of life underneath. And I could have sat and stared at these teeny-tiny hermit crabs for hours.
September 22 - There's always a point mid-project when I start to wonder if it will all actually get done. Today's project was switching out spring/summer clothes for fall/winter ones. This included making stacks for consignment, hand-me-downs, and thrift store, and stacks of things for the girls to try on. Also in the middle of it all, a cranky baby. Oh my.
September 23 - For a lot of really good reasons, this sweet baby girl went back home today. So we gave her lots of extra love. While we are going to miss her, Dani especially, the week was a lot of work and stress and I'm not sad that is over. This week was really revealing to us, and our family might not quite be ready for the adventure of a full-on placement yet.
September 24 - Giving herself a pep talk in the mirror before her first gymnastics class. You should see the video that goes along with this picture!
September 25 - Practicing "piano" on her sister's toy laptop on the way home from her lesson because she was so excited about her assignment to figure out the last line of Mary Had a Little Lamb.
September 26 - Who needs an apple for the teacher when you can give an Asian pear from Grandpa and Nana's orchard?
