I can't believe that my baby girl is already 2! She is such a bundle of personality. She is a sweet little girl who is very independent and knows what she wants. She is crazy about her big sister - most of the time. She is really starting to talk a lot more. We have been trying to get her to say that she was one since her first birthday. She would never do it. Today Andy asks her "How old are you? Are you 2?" She looked at him and said "I one." She makes me laugh. And she will tell you "I funny." Here is a very brief look back.
(I still can't get over all of her dark hair)

The water was really cold. If we asked Caroline if she wanted to go swimming she would nod her head yes. If we asked her if she wanted to get wet she responded with a loud "no." She liked being in the water, but someone pretty much had to be holding her. She would not get in one of the baby floats. I think she ended up having fun.
We had a great time with the Wii Fit when Andy's parents were here. I have a really funny video of Andy playing the hula hoop game, but he does not want that on the blog. Seeing as how I would like to stay married I am not going to put it on here. No matter how much I really want to. I have this clip of Papa playing the same hula hoop game. Sorry Jim. I could not figure out how to get it to turn the video. You will just have to lean sideways to watch this.
What was really funny was Jim doing the Yoga tree pose with Andy holding him up. I did not have the camera out at that point, and a moment like that cannot be recreated. That is the hardest I have laughed in a really long time.
That is a really fun game. It is amazing to me that I can be out of breath and my legs are sore from playing a video game. I would like to say how challenging the game can be, but I am sure it also has a great deal to do with how out of shape I am. I am so glad Jenny found this the day it came out.
A member of our class happened to walk by after we picked up the kids. I had him take this picture of all of us. Grandma Nancy was there too, but she left out of a different door. It really was a special day and I am so proud of her for the decision that she made.

They had a fun last week of school. On Monday they wore pajamas to school. Thank goodness I had bought her a pair of High School Musical pjs. She was very happy to put them on for school.
Here she is on Tuesday. The theme was "Hats off to summer." They could wear hats, sunglasses and flip flops. These cute Gymboree sunglasses did not make it home from school in one piece. I told her not to lose them...I forget to mention don't break them. They got stepped on.
Wednesday was "happy trails to school." This is the closest we had to being able to dress western. I thought she looked pretty cute.
Today was "Aloha to kindergarten" We bought a dress with flowers on it and called it Hawaiian.
Here are 2 first graders.
This is Kayla's friend Emori. Her mother is having a c-section in the morning. I feel so sorry for her. She has a fever and has been vomiting for 2 days. She just feels terrible. Who wants to be having a baby when you just feel awful. Hopefully she will feel better in the morning and be able to find a little bit of energy to take care of her new baby boy, Cole. I can't wait to meet him. Kayla and I will be going to the hospital in the morning after her dentist appointment.

They had already done handprints, so there was paint all over the table. Then Caroline proceeds to run laps around the table. The red paint that is on the top of her feet is also on the bottom. I catch her and start cleaning her up. Kayla decides she will go wash her feet. Keep in mind there is now blue paint on the bottom of both of her feet. She WALKS to the bathroom - leaving behind a lovely trail of blue paint - thru the kitchen, down the hall, into the bathroom, and across both bathroom rugs.
This is when I talk to my dear friend and neighbor Robyn. She takes both girls so I can get the paint cleaned up. Then we had a little pizza party at her house. What a lifesaver! And you have to love the person that created WASHABLE paint. This could have been really bad. I think the kids had fun.

Yes, Caroline is wearing a pull-up on the outside of her pants. I do realize they work better if they are under the clothes. She saw a commercial for them today and ran in the bathroom to put one on. I have been unable to get her to take it off!

She will get baptized in front of the church when we are ready. I think a good weekend might be when Jim and Darlene come to town - if they can stay that late in the day. We would do it during late service which tends to dismiss around 12:15. It would be wonderful for her if all of her grandparents were able to be there.

Next season will be very different. We have had most of these kids on our team for 4 seasons. Next year the team will be all girls. I think that will be a good thing.
Andy has been a great coach. He does a good job with the kids, and I think the parents really appreciate his efforts.
Go sharks! Chomp, Chomp
