Our local school district finished their year last week Monday, which means, I no longer have two little boys in my house. That should mean that life has slowed down, but it seems to be just the opposite. These next few weeks are packed full for all of us. I have a slew of appointments that I couldn't make it to when I had the boys, so now it is catch up time for those. We came back Monday from spending 5 days in Minnesota. We went up to help a great friend, Nikki, celebrate her new marriage. The wedding was beautiful and it was wonderful being able to see so many old friends in such a short time.
In a few more weeks, hopefully, we will finally feel caught up with everything and I will feel inspired to write again. In the meantime, if there is anything you are wondering about or want to know, please ask and give me ideas of what to write.

As I mentioned the other day, Josh has been out of town all week for training and you sure can tell the girls miss him. Yesterday Lillian was upset over something, they both have been extra emotional these past few days, so I tried to give her a kiss and tell her I love her. Lillian responded by saying "you don't love me, only daddy does " and wiping my kisses away. She refused kisses from me all day yesterday.
Claire has had her own melt Downs by letting the smallest thing get to her. She didn't want to have a dance party with the rest of us yesterday morning, so she hid in the corner of the living room while Lillian, myself and the boys danced around the house. Eventually Claire went and cried in her bed. When she stopped, she laid quietly in bed reading books. After 10 minutes of that she came out ready to dance and play.
Yes they have break downs when Josh is him, but not as many and for no real reason. Thankfully Josh is on his way home right now, because all three of us could use some daddy hugs, it has been a long week.

<p>In the fall the girls will be starting preschool and I will be starting my new job. I am really excited to get back in the classroom and do my thing.
A couple Sundays ago the preschool had an open house, I had to be there to meet families and Josh brought the girls to meet their teacher and see their new school. They loved it! Their teacher asked them their names and Claire right away speaks up, "Claire Elizabeth Ward." She said it with so much pride. Lillian played the shy card so Claire spoke for her, "Lillian Faith Ward. " Then they ran off to play. Josh kept them there for about an hour before trying to convince them it was time to go. They ask all the time go to school and play with their friends. We are going to sign them up for the vacation Bible school session at the church where they will attend preschool. It is just one week in July and I know they will have a blast.
