Many of you may know this already, but for those that do not, most of my side of the family lives in Texas. We have some in Dallas and Houston and some here in Austin. Even though we live in the same state, between work and kids and life in general we don’t get to see each other as often as we would like. We do try to get everyone together every few months. This weekend we all gathered and celebrated family birthdays from February, March and April. Casey was thrilled about the idea of getting some of her birthday presents early. What kid wouldn’t like that idea?
My family came in for a late lunch on Saturday, followed by cake and presents. Casey was being good, but she wasn’t really interested in much. On Sunday almost everyone came back before heading home. On Sunday, Casey was ready to play. She was wiggling all over the place trying to get to where the action was. Eventually she ended up in the playroom with her cousin (he’s 1 year older). They were pretty cute. I sat with Casey on the floor and she was working really hard to keep her head up and pay attention. Riley is very into presidents and was teaching Casey all about them. He would tell her about one, then ask her if she wanted to know about another one. If she said yes he would go into detail, if not then he would go down the list until he found one she wanted to hear about. He would write it up on her chalk board and she was loving it. They were funny.
Casey was supposed to go with a class at her school to the library tomorrow. She has been looking forward to it for weeks. When we picked her up today though they told us they had to postpone a week for testing 🙁
Casey lost another tooth this weekend. That’s 4 now. She has 3 others that are super loose. I expect she will loose more any day now. She LOVES to wake up and find treats from the tooth fairy. We have to read her tooth fairy book before she can go to sleep too.
That’s about it for now. I will be sure to post after she goes to the library next week. I can’t wait to hear all about it. I am sure she will have a great time. As always, we hope everyone is well.
