Look Mom No Training Wheels!

Isabelle decided she was ready to learn to ride a bike. She has pestered Shaun for several days to take off her training wheels. So here she is getting ready to ride.
Shaun's trick is to get them started on the driveway and ride into the grass, so when they crash it will be on soft grass.  There she goes!

Yeah! She did it!  They spent over an hour out there practicing. Next step learning how to stop!
Carrie & little Eric came to visit last week.  We had fun holding and lovin  on that sweet baby.  Oh and we had fun with Carrie too.   
The girls loved holding Eric, it has been 5 yrs since we had a baby at our house.  Sarah was getting good babysitting practice in, she even changed a diaper.

Wise or Foolish?

Our Stake did a musical play on the 10 Virgins.  I was asked to do the costumes, and of course I procrastinated. So for the last week I have been very busy sewing, luckily I have had a little help but had I planned better I would have had a lot of help.  Needless to say my children were neglected, my house is a mess, and my husband has taken the brunt of it all.   I would like to say things are going to get back to normal but last week I was called to be the 1st councilor in the Relief Society.  So maybe I will plan better & be more organized.  Right.......
The play turned out wonderful, the props and scenery looked great and I think the costumes looked pretty good too.  I am glad it is over.
