We’ve had a lot of sunshine here, and the girls’ faces alight with happiness with each ray of sunshine. It’s been wonderful to see them playing at the beach, running in the yard, and helping in the garden.

The girls have also started visiting their father more this week, and without anyone supervising. They had fun on Wednesday having dinner, and I’m hoping they have fun with him tomorrow, too.

Sunday is BG’s 11th birthday! How on earth did I become the mother of an almost 11 year old? Wait, no, i don’t mean it that way, I mean how did time pass so quickly? She’s excited to have a special birthday time with her grandparents, and then there will be special presents and fun with her mom and sisters, too.

Saturday night will definitely be quiet with just the two younger girls here, and without their grandparents! Somehow I think we’ll have fun anyhow – and we need to make a cake!

Meanwhile, I managed somehow to win a contest! Many thanks to Melanie for hosting the Big Pepsi Giveaway. I have been looking forward to trying Pepsi without corn syrup, and now we have some cool accessories for our (soon, soon, soon we hope!) new apartment!

It rained today, but not too much, so we were able to play outside more than I expected. Now we’re off to use up energy at the Y for Family Night – rock climbing, swimming, and gymnastics, yippeee!
