Life... progressing as normal. Not much to report, but what there is to share I will do so now...

Mark is working 10 hour days (finally). We miss having him home at 4, but appreciate the extra money it brings in, so we can do fun things like go out for meals.

On Saturday we took our girls to the miniature railroad in North Burnaby. Its a small park with lots of track and 1/18th scale engines that pull bench cars. Lots of fun!

Kara just keeps on talking more and more. It's wonderful! She's also really interested in letters, though all she can say is "A" and "O".

Chloe has now had 2 weeks of preschool, and is enjoying it like last year. We have to wait one more week, and then she also gets to go to dance class. Both times we have dropped Chloe off, Kara also goes to the story-time rug and really wants to be a part of preschool. I am sure the same thing will happen with dance class.

I am starting a dance class of my own tomorrow night. I bet I will be super tired and super sore on Tuesday morning! It will be nice to do something I enjoy by myself for 2 hours though :)

18 months (plus a few days)

Kara turned 18 months old on September 10. Wow! A year and a half already. And its been filled with tons of smiles, laughs and cuddles, and general amazement at our beautiful baby girl! Kara, we love you very much.

Chloe starts preschool tomorrow, and is really looking forward to it. She's been asking every day "is it preschool day yet?" for at least a week... definitely excited!

Otherwise, we've had a few sicknesses in our house the past few weeks, but we're all doing good now. We've got Kara back on wheat so we can get her tested in a few weeks for celiac disease. We decided to do it now as we're tired of always second guessing what she's been eating. So far she hasn't been doing too badly, so I'm hoping that's a good sign.

Off to play with a new book Chloe got! Have a great day everyone.

Chloe's Birthday Party

Its a few days late, because I've been sick, but here are some pictures from Chloe's birthday party, which was on Saturday August 28 :D
