Well, it's like my last post was a jinx or something, because we continued to have many illnesses around here for the next month. All of us had coughs and sniffles at various times, and Hannah was stricken with the flu and missed a week of school. We all seem to be healthy at the moment though, so I'm grateful for that.
Purim was this past week, and we had a good time celebrating this year. Hannah decided that rather than be like every other girl in her class and dress as Queen Esther, she would rather be a hamentaschen. I was secretly relieved, as coming up with a princess costume to her liking may not have been so easy. We bought some tan foam core and lots of glitter, and she made the triangles. Good thing that she did, as if I had done it, it would have been a lot more equilateral, whereas her version actually looked "hamentaschen-y." The best part of her costume was that the black leggings she wore were "the plate!"
Yesterday we bought Hannah her first real bike, and we're encouraging her attempts at riding as much as we can. Max has his car as well, and this morning I had both of them cruising in the driveway simultaneously. The only issue with this is that both of them are better at going backwards than forwards. Hopefully this will change soon.
We leave for Disney World in 10 days!!! I'm incredibly ready to be on this vacation, but I'm not sure how I'm going to get everything organized for us to leave before then. I'm a pretty good packer, but this time I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. I think it's the fact that we're leaving very early in the morning during the middle of the week, and it's not like I'm the most energetic person after working all day. But, I'm sure we'll get it done, and it's just Florida, it's not like we can't purchase things while we're there! Hannah is really excited, and I think Max is going to enjoy it too. I just wish he could actually remember it once he's older. We'll be taking lots of pictures and video I'm sure.
So my next post will probably be after the trip...wish us luck!
