Noella got her new glasses, which she has been VERY excited about. Every time that they were mentioned in the past two weeks (while we waited for them to come in) she YELLED IN JOY about her glasses. Wherever we were. So many, many people knew of this impending event. We picked them up tonight and she was thrilled to put them on!
Holden's big news is that he is now heading to school in his underwear! There has been some extra laundry (both at home and at school, which I must say makes me adore his teachers even more than before), but he is very proud of himself. As you can likely tell by the fact that he took all of his clothes off and asked me to take his picture.
Not to be outdone, Mariel also has some big events this week. She completed her skills in her level of gymnastics on Monday and will start on a higher level next week. She is also celebrating the sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time tomorrow, which she has been preparing for all fall. She is feeling very proud and mature, too.
As for Patrick and I, we both already wear glasses and underwear to school/work. Maybe we should sign up for gymnastics to have something to work on?
