Growing Up...

 Ok, some major major news.  Lily is potty trained!!!!!!  Ok, I might need to add a few more of these  !!!!!    Does that show you how excited I am about this??   I hope so.  Lily is 3 1/2 and we have tried this potty thing a few different times.  All ended in me being too frustrated to try any more and we pulled out the diapers again and again.  And I'm hoping that this is the real deal.  No more diapers for this girls of mine, minus night-time.  I can't even say how nice it has been these last several days to just have one bum to diaper.  Heaven.  :)  Way to go Lily!  We're SO proud!!!
 This Hannah of ours has been gung ho in her "cool school."  She has known her letters and sounds for quite awhile, and this mom was just not with it enough to really get her going with our cool school that my other kids have done.  (a.k.a. Hooked on Phonics)  But we've been regular with it now and she is starting to sail through it.  She loves when she gets to read one of the many book included with the program.  I love that program!  It has real beginning books.  If you go to the library and look for beginning books, they all have sight words in them that beginners just don't know.  I love that HOP really starts from the basics and moves on in a great sequential way.  Way to go Han!!  Keep up the good work!
