Julia: She had a major tantrum about changing her clothes after church. She knows what she wants, and nobody can persuade her otherwise. She can also make Cora cry. Julia is 20 months old. Cora is 4 years old.
Cora: When I asked her to throw a piece of trash away in the living room tonight, she agreed to do it. Then she said she would do it because we are the Mommies, and the Mommies have to clean up.
Anna: She was one of the first ones up this morning. She bounds in to our room, with a smile on her face, and tells us about her plans for the day.
Lydia: When watching Frozen and the choir came on for the coronation, she said, "Nice choir." This afternoon she made up a game for the neighbor kids to play together. They would jump across the creek (read, waterway) in the common area in the back and try to tag the other kids. She titled this game "Tag with an element of surprise."
Madeline: When she and I got home this afternoon from memory master proofing, she saw Lydia with their tablet outside. It is not suppose to be outside. She rolled down the window and was yelling at Lydia to bring the tablet inside. Lydia had run the power low, had it outside, and Madeline was almost in tears.
