Aaron learned (today) to ride a bike without training wheels. Aaron did wipe out a couple of times in his quest to master his task, but courageously hopped back on the horse. I wish I had a picture. Tim just said "Well, we would have had pictures, but we were too busy chasing after him to get any." Maybe next time.

Sleep Issues and Sweatshirts

Let it be said I am happy to have a child that loves life. Let it also be said that she could be a better sleeper.


I found, in a box of clothes that we had loaned a friend, a little gray sweatshirt that the girls received back in 2002. Actually, we have two of them. There is nothing special about these sweatshirts, other than the fact that they were worn daily by the twins, and then by Aaron, and then by this other little child, and NOW by Melina.

Five kids will have gone through these sweatshirts, and really, I'll probably pass them on to someone else. Never underestimate the power of a good sweatshirt, eh? If everything we owned were made as well as these sweatshirts are, I think we'd all be better off.

Happy Weekend!
