Me Too Turns 3!!

Me Too had a birthday yesterday! She is three years old! I can't believe it. We had a little impromptu party for her last night. It started with let's just have some pizza and cupcakes with Grammy and Grampy and before you know it everyone from both sides of the family were here! It was great! We had so much fun and Me Too got lots of great presents - mostly coloring related because that is what she is so into right now. What we did not get lots of were pictures. For some reason, most of the pictures turned out very dark and you can hardly see anyone! So, here are the two we have!

Campo goes to the Ear, Nose, Throat (ENT) doctor today to see what is up with his ears and maybe find out if he'll have to have tubes or not. The girls went with Grammy to have a fun day which is nice because Doug is very sick with whatever we are all passing around. Maybe the quiet will help him get to feeling better.

Campo is walking all over the place these days. It is so cute. Here is what it looks like!

I had a parent teacher conference for Big Bear this week. They let us know how they're doing in relation to being ready for kindergarten next year. Until I worked in a preschool, I never realized how much you have to know to do well in kindergarten now and how many people hold their kids back an extra year to be ready. But they said that Big Bear is more than ready and will do great. She is doing well academically, but more importantly to me, she is a really good kid at school. They said she pays attention, doesn't follow the other kids if they are doing the wrong thing, she is polite and well behaved. I was glowing after that report. What more could a mom ask for? Now we just need to decide where she'll actually go to school! We are trying to decide between public school and Catholic school. It is a very tough decision and there are pros and cons to both. We can't seem to get going either way so it's time to start investigating a path and see where it leads us!

So, overall life is good. The big glitch is the job/financial situation but we're just leaving that up to the Lord and trusting that everything will work out...well, I'm trying to do all of that anyway!!

Aww I'm glad you had a good birthday! Good luck on the school front... We're not looking forward to that!
I talked to Dylan about Doug's situation, and he said that he should try looking at the City of Dallas' website. if there is anything that looks interesting to him, he's more than welcome to use Dylan as a reference. They have all kinds of jobs there.
And, after a 6 month probationary period, you become a civil servant and it takes an act of congress to get you laid off. Job security is very handy.... as I am sure you know quite well.
