Kiddo updates include the exciting news that Kai is officially potty trained. Hooray! We took the slow and steady approach, which involved buying a TON of big boy underwear and tolerating frequent accidents for weeks, but it finally clicked, and he's figured it out. Pla Shee's doing great--playing soccer with a church league here in Venus which is both convenient and non-competitive--both big positives in the craziness that is our life right now. He's also doing really well at Venus Elementary...he really seems to be thriving academically and socially. Ruby went in for her 6 month check-up this week and weighed in at 16.8 pounds. I'm feeling good about the bet I made with Aaron that she will surpass Kai's weight (currently 23 pounds and holding) by the time she turns one.
Here are a few pics from Easter weekend:
Visiting Karen refugees in Garland on Saturday evening.
The kids at church on Sunday morning. Kai forgot to smile.
No one looks thrilled to be in this one.
The boys and their "cousins" decorating a bunny cake. Well, by decorating I mean they're mostly eating candy.
