Good night

Candace and Sarah snuggle up while Anna reads them a bedtime story. What a great big sister!

Let the Americanization begin

Last week, I posted about a remark Sarah made that cracked me up. Today it was Candace's turn. We were on the way home from dropping Anna off at the large suburban high school where she has diving practice. It's about a 50 minute round-trip from our house. Candace was in the back seat, whining about how hungry she was and bemoaning the fact that we had to take Anna to diving practice at such a (and I quote here) "faraway castle."

Hmmm... too many Disney princess movies?

Out of the mouths of babes

Today I was impatiently encouraging Sarah to hurry up as we were late getting out the door for Anna's diving practice, and Sarah was lolly-gagging in the bathroom. "I can't hurry!" she fumed at me. Exasperated, I demanded to know why. "Because I'm five," she said.
Oh. :)

Candace and Sarah started pre-K today. They were very excited and have been counting down the days for two weeks. Here they are with their bag of school supplies. They had a great time at school and each told me they did a "good job!"

We also had a fun weekend with Grandma and Grandpa Miles (visiting from Indiana) and our local cousins. We got to go out on the boat a few times, which the girls love. Daddy let each of the girls have a turn at the helm. Sarah did a lot of posing on board; she likes to have her picture taken.
Last but not least, a picture of the twins after their bath. They love bath time and they love their fuzzy pink bath towels.
