I was going to upload a bunch of videos, but my Blogger account is not linking to my YouTube account for some reason... so y'all click here to see some cute new videos (there's one of MC saying "Annalee" over and over again).
Last weekend we had our first poolside get-together.... so it's officially summer! Chad even built us a crawfish table for all future gatherings.
Friday I packed my entire classroom (and Karen's - since she's moving to 10th grade) into my storage closet. I'll hate myself come August, but it felt good to get out of there!
Tyler babysat Sunday night while Jane and I had a girl date and Tommy and Chad had a man date. We had sushi and wine at Sake Cafe; they had wings and beer at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Girls night out
Penn talking to MC during dinner
Her ballet recital is Thursday, which should be interesting. I'm not sure they do anything more than turn in circles, but she sure is cute in those clothes. Every Thursday morning she says, "Let's put on my princess clothes, Mama."
The girl is an absolute nut. She always has on a pair of glasses, a purse, a book, and at least one animal. She thinks she's an adult (since we treat her like one), so she usually has lots of practical objects as well. It might be a roll of tape, a small screwdriver, or a notebook.
The other morning she ate two bites of bacon. This was a HUGE step for her since she rarely eats anything that's not bread (i.e. pancakes, waffles, sandwiches, crackers, french fries, etc.). Maybe she's normal after all.
Penn has not been drinking the entirety of his bottles, so I decided I'd try to get him down to 4 bottles (instead of 5) with more ounces in them. So far it's working. We'll start baby food next month... I can hardly wait! That was such a fun time for me with MaryCollis. I especially enjoy making it. Dawn, you should come over one day this summer, and we'll make and freeze a whole bunch of foods for our little men!
The little guy is just growing and growing. He's a very happy baby and grins more than any kid I've seen. He was diagnosed with bronchiolitis last week, along with an ear infection, so I have to give him breathing treatments 3x/day plus extra reflux medication since the bronchiolitis makes it flare up. I swear we keep Read Drugs in business!
We celebrated Memorial Day and Barbara's birthday at our house yesterday. Chad cooked burgers, and I made my famous guacamole. We all watched MC splash around until she was tired, then we cut a watermelon.
