The weather the past two days has been unseasonably warm. As in the 70's. It has been AWESOME. We obviously took advantage of the nice weather to spend some time outside. The girls got scooters for Christmas and I threw them in the back of the van to take over to Nanna's big driveway so they could have an opportunity to play with them. They were having fun doing races up and down the driveway. Maddie wanted Nanna to count to 1-2-3-4-GO! Instead of the typical 1-2-3.

After scooting for a while we went to Jason's Deli for lunch. I wish they'd open one down the street from me, but it's probably better that there isn't one. After lunch we dropped Nanna and Popo off and came home for some 'quiet' time. The girls are officially done with naps, except for the occasional accidental one! But I am requiring them to go upstairs and play by themselves quietly for awhile each day to give us all some "alone" quiet space.

The other huge transition that has been going on around here is graduating the girls play area upstairs. I've been working for the past week to organize most of their toys upstairs. We are going to call their old toy room the "school" room. I'm going to do preschool at home, so I'm setting up the downstairs with a really great preschool set up. We have a reading nook, art supplies, manipulatives and more. It's a work in progress.

And speaking of graduating... the girls graduated from Kidz Gym 1 to Kidz Gym 2 at gymnastics. They've both mastered all the skills in level one so now we are moving up! I'm so excited for the girls and have really enjoyed watching their progress in gymnastics over the past year and a half.
