We failed to get any pictures of our dinner out with Susan’s friend, Megan, and her family. It was a nice dinner and Lucia and Rose had fun playing with some other kids.
I don’t usually post about our house projects, but this project took us a few days. We painted our shelves white.
My Aunt Nancy, who lives in Indianapolis, stopped by for lunch today. She was visiting my cousin in Kansas City and made the drive up to Des Moines. We had a nice lunch and she took a few minutes afterward to play on the trampoline with Rose.
This evening we celebrated Mari’s 14th birthday with Susan’s parents and the Reagens. We had Skyline for dinner and the candy-dish cake that has become popular among our kids.
Mari at 14 is turning into a smart, independent young woman. She does well in school, is very responsible, and is particular about many things in life. She does not hesitate to share her feelings openly.

This morning we celebrated Rose’s 4th birthday! We had Susan’s parents, the Reagens, and the Thibodeaus over for brunch, cake, and presents.
Rose continues to be a joy to have around. She brings a lot of energy and excitement to the house, appreciating the little things that most of us take for granted. She shares a room and a bed with Lucia, and manages to stay on the same schedule as the rest of us. She often sneaks in a nap in the car to help keep up with our hectic schedule.
