Josh: Encouraging Ellie to do well in our potty training "battle" this week. (I tell you if this kid potty trains her for me...he's goin' to college.)

Ellie: Describing a picture she drew. It had hills and water and grass and big hills, too. (As a teacher I'm so excited to see her beginning to draw and be able to label what she has done.)

Owen: Making a "snow angel" in a plush rug with his flailing arms and legs. (I love it when he gets this wild look in his eyes and the legs and arms really get going!)

Carey: Surviving, very well, the weekend with two of the kids camping, in a tent, by himself. (I love this man.)

Me: Enjoying the quiet of the house while the kids were gone. (Oddly, it was hard, because I've gotten used to the noise and chaos.)

Good luck with the potty training. I think I'll have to start in the next week or two also (since she hasn't tried in over a week now). It also pains me to see a girl half Kyra's size run around in underwear!

So cool! I feel like I got to peek into your house! :) BTW, major kudos to your husband! :)
