Back to "Normal"

I'm not even sure what "Normal" is anymore!

Anyway -Kids Closet is over...for the most part. I know I will have at least 2 more meetings....a final wrap meeting and a tag sorting/check signing meeting. But other than that...we are relatively DONE until August when preparations begin for the Fall/Winter Sale September 18/19. We grossed approximately $45,000...and about $14-15,000 of that will go to the Kindergarten/Nursery School program. Not a bad fundraiser, huh!?! And we do it twice per school year, too! (The Fall/Sale grossed over $50K last October).

This week should be NORMAL! I should be home every night to cook dinner! I should be home almost every night for bath/bedtime! I don't have to get up at 6:15 on Saturday! YEAH! But, I do confess that Kids Closet is kinda fun and I will miss the social aspect of it, but we are all so worn out right now.

Also- my kids never got sick last week!! Thats a Kids Closet week FIRST!!! Everyone else's kids got sick...but luckily, mine escaped the funk!

Its been beautiful weather here since last Friday! Beth got her birthday present a week early - a new "big girl" bike - blue with pink polka dots...and NO training wheels...and she's getting pretty good at riding it, too!! I'm excited for her, too, but a little part of me was sad that she's already that big! I didn't even think about capturing the moment on camera when she was learning on Saturday. Bad mommy! I'll try to snap some pictures today of her on it. Sarah is THRILLED that Beth's old bike (with training" wheels) is now her bike, even though she's been riding it since last fall! But...she can now call it her own! I'm guessing she'll be riding without training wheels by the time she's 4 or 4 1/2 (or maybe even sooner- we'll have to see!).

I can't believe Beth will be 6 in one week....ugh!!!
