On Monday, Daphne started rolling from tummy to back. It is pretty funny to watch because she hikes her leg up and rocks and rocks until she rolls over. She did it for the first time Monday and -unlike Norah and Lucy - she did it multiple times in row. Almost anytime she is on her tummy, she flips herself over.

Girls, wands are NOT swords. Do not hit each other with your wands.

Daphne has been incredibly grumpy this week. At the beginning of the week, I assumed it was a result of having shots on Monday. By last night I knew that was not the case. Of course, I'm hoping this is not some crazy crying/fussing phase we are going through. She is really pretty happy most of the day, but 4:00 p.m. hits and WATCH OUT! She cries if she is held, she cries if she is put down, she cries in the bouncy seat, she cries in the car seat - you get the picture.

The hardest thing right now about homeschooling is that we don't know anyone Norah's age who homeschools. Norah often asks when she is going to GO to school - like her friends. She seems to enjoy the schooling that we do together, but I think she feels like the odd one out because she doesn't have any friends who are homeschooled.
Since Daphne is going to be 4 months tomorrow - we decided to give her some cereal!
The girls and I spent a few days this week in Morton. We went to help my mom with a garage sale - but it rained most of the time. Tuesday evening was nice, but it poured all Wednesday morning. We had a few garage salers who braved the rain. Norah and Contessa LOVED playing in the rain - Lucy was not a big fan!!

These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deut. 6:6-9

Lucy had her 3 year check today. She is doing great! She weighs 27 pounds (10%) and is 36 inches tall (25%). The doctor said if she stays in the 25% she will end up about 5' 2". (I'm sort of wondering what that means for Norah since she is never out of the 5%.)

Today, Lucy said to me, "Why you wear those shorts today?"

Kevin and I decided to participate in a triathlon. Neither of us have ever done this before - Kevin has run a number of half-marathons and a full marathon. I have run a half marathon, multiple 10k's and 5k's. We both would like a new challenge so we opted for a sprint triathlon! It isn't until the end of August, so we have plenty of time to train.
Why is it that EVERY weekend flies by?
Check out the picture and poll on the side of my blog!! What do you think??
