Goodbye weekend! It was a good one. Although I might have liked a bit more sleep. Oh well :)
This coming week will be busy, well what week isn't these days!
Both girls start new after school activities. Rosa has a dance class she is taking with an old classmate, and Veda will be starting karate.

My girls doing August's hair at their "salon" this weekend.

The Salon was so cute the girls put together. They would sit you in the chair, give you a magazine, and braid your hair. Veda would hold up a hand mirror the whole time so you could see your transformation. Auggie transformed in to a boy with pink barrettes and braids.. ha ha . He is such a good sport.

Swimming lessons in this house is a bad word (Just ask my kids). I'm not sure why. Both me and my husband love to swim..we assumed our children would too. Despite having them in lessons since they were young.. they all have a slight fear of the water. Now after so many years, only Rosa will dunk her head and can swim a few feet. So technically she is still in the same starter class. Veda is now in that same class as well (3 times a charm right?). This might be a bad idea since they both can feed in to their fears. I'm determined though, to have them swimming by summer!

Can you fix it?

Yes he can! August was carrying his tools around today asking me what needed fixing. He asked me to call him Bob (not the builder apparently JUST Bob)too. I would point out wobbly chair legs and what not for him to "fix" when we were done playing he said .."anything else ma'am" ha ha ha So cute.

It is a new year!

Of course there are new resolutions and what not. Does anyone really stick with them? I don't know, it is fun to start fresh though. I also love having goals, even if they may not all get seen through to the end. It is worth a try right?
One of my goals is to cook more at home. More fresh and from scratch dinners. That and branch out from the same 4 dinners we always eat. This is going to require more planning on my part, thinking of what is for dinner at 4pm is not going to fly anymore. I will try though.
