I hope it's not bad of me to put a video of Maddie in the shower on here (she'll probably be mad at me for taking it when she's about 15). I had to do it, because it was so funny. Maddie was taking a shower and singing the funniest song at the top of her lungs. I was going to try and sneak a video of her, but instead she saw me first thing. So instead of me getting her funny song, I got her slipping and falling. We both had a good laugh.
Maddie keeps watching this video over and over on my computer and she laughs so hard her face turns red.

In this video the teacher told them they could do whatever they wanted, but they had to do it slow. All the other kids copied what the teacher was doing-but Maddie knew she said they could choose what they do-so she did. And notice how she makes sure she is the first one done.
Once again, Maddie becomes the first one in line. oh, well. Her class was so fun for me to watch! I can't believe she's old enough to be in dance.

Also, today I got all signed up as a substitute teacher. I know it sounds uneventful, but it's a way for me to stay close to the school districts and earn points for my Level 2 teaching licence, all without actually having to go everyday and make lesson plans. This way I get to go into lots of schools and I get to choose which days I work (which will be whatever days Andy has off of work). I'm excited and the pay isn't to horrible.
I babysat my friend's kids the other day and we were all playing at the playground. The boys were working hard at trying to get to the top of the ant. Maddie finally got sick of watching and said, "here just let me show you how to do it." She is so funny!

Maddie will ask him to find things in the story and then she will take his hand and make him point to the correct answer followed by a good amount of praise. She is so funny, she loves to be the teacher or the person in charge. And notice Garen's belly hanging out-he is getting so big!

I don't know how to flip this video the right way-Any ideas?

This morning we all went and played a little tennis. On our way out we all had our hands full with our rackets and the kids and forgot the keys to the car, which were now locked in the house. So before we got to go play, we had to pull the screen of one of the windows, that thankfully I had left unlocked. We had a fun time playing. Maddie really enjoyed it and she's pretty good!

Check out the look on her face. I think she is pretty worried about missing.

Garen's everyday task is to try his hardest to climb on something that shouldn't be climbed on, and then to fall off of it. Here's what he decided to conquer today- the musical play table and Maddie's red chair. And yes, he fell on his head several times. But there is no stopping him.
