Since the kids were out of school for the week I decided to arrange my work schedule so I only had to work 1 day late in the week (I love that I can do that) and hit the potty training hard. First thing Monday morning we hit the ground running. Kate was so excited to wear big girl panties. First day went pretty well. Some successes and some failures. Day 2 was really long but we ended with some big success. She is doing fairly well. She is still excited and really wants to do it but I am just not sure if she is physically ready yet. We are going to stick it out for the week and see if we can get it down though. If not we will try again in a few months (just shoot me though)!
This means we have not left the house in 2 days and all we do is go to the bathroom every 10 minutes. It is brutal! I think I might pull my hair out. But we are surviving! This might go down as the worst spring break ever!! So if you don't hear from me over the next few days it might be because I have totally lost my mind.

We had the best kind of Sunday afternoon yesterday. We went to the park and met up with our friends the Johnsons. They are so wonderful and we love getting to hang out with them. The weather was perfect. The kids played and the adults chatted. We played some Tball and frisbee. We ate picnic dinners. It was just the perfect kind of evening! The kids just ran around and had a blast together!

Last night the kids friends Evan and Addy came over for a night of fun. We ate pizza.
Then they watched Robin Hood. I loved having a house full of kiddos and fun laughter. It was a lot of fun!

Ok I have to start with a picture of Kate. Her hair was super poofy today. I was laughing with friends at school saying she looked like a beauty pageant girl. Poor girl is going to have hair issues as she gets older. This was after nap so it was messy but you can see the poof!

Ok so I guess I should title this post Mommy Fail! That is totally what I did. We were all excited about Ben's first Tball practice and I knew it would make a great post for tonight. To post about Tball practice you need pictures and to get pictures you need a camera and/or a working phone. Since I had neither I guess it was not meant to be!
Today was just one of those days! It was a super busy day when everything had to be perfectly timed. It got off to a rough start when my phone froze up and wouldn't work. So I just had to wait for the battery to run out. That took 12 hours. I had to go all day without a phone. How did we used to survive without a phone at all times?
So I rushed home from work to get Ben to practice on time and totally forgot the camera! Oh well. He had a great first practice. He had lots of fun and we think it is going to be a great season. Don't worry I will post lots of pictures from the next practice!

After some very long days of working we (well it was mostly Matt) finished up the attic project! So exciting!!!! It is wonderful to have the attic much more usable now. We also took the time to organize and clean out. There is so much more room as well. We can get lots more junk I guess.
