Today was Lucia’s birthday party, but we didn’t take any pictures because she was not feeling well. We still had the Hylands, Liesses, and Reagens over for dinner, but Lucia wasn’t feeling well, so it was a short night.
This past weekend we went to Colorado to spend the weekend with Andrew. He is on Fall Break at school, which lined up nicely with his birthday. We left Des Moines on Friday, picked up Andrew, and then went to Woodland Park, which is up the hill from Colorado Springs. We spent Saturday and Sunday exploring the area and then on Monday we drove Andrew back to school and headed home.
It was great to see Andrew again and get the gang back together. We all miss having him around.
Today we celebrated Rose’s birthday, a day late because yesterday was a busy day.
Rose at 7 is a lot of fun. She and Lucia still spend 99% of their time together and get along extraordinarily well. Rose’s ideal schedule is waking up at 8 and going to be at 10. She likes waffles and bagels for breakfast, mac and cheese for lunch, and walking tacos for dinner. This past year she did dance and soccer, and loved the 2nd grade.
