Louise visits the Insect house

As a special treat for Louise, Nana and Grandad we had a special behind the scenes look at the Butterfly and Insect house. Our guide was the Director of the Butterfly house. Louise was the bravest of us to gets hand-on experience with a stick insect, butterflies and a tarantula.

Well children - age 5

Charlotte & Claire had a 5 year-old well child checkup.  They are So Big!  Charlotte is a whopping 3'9.125"; Claire is 3'9".  Claire is still heavier, at 51lbs; Charlotte is a feather-like 44.4lbs.  The pediatrician recommended that we read Stanley Turecki's "The Difficult Child" to help us do a better job of parenting Charlotte.

We are also busy getting ready to put the house on the market.  The kids are excited and positive about the move, and they are doing a great job of keeping their rooms tidy.  (The house no longer looks like ours!).

Finally, we are enjoying our final weekend with Nana and Grandad.  Today we took them to the zoo, and the rest of the weekend will be filled with egg hunts and other Easter fun.
