Growing Girls…

Spring is whizzing by here…it's just incredible how busy this family of five has been.  We did take a break in April, to travel to NYC together.  All of us!  It was grand to be together in one place for four days.  We did tons of walking.  Tons!!  And saw the sights:

It wasn't all fun and games though.  This is what things look like after walking too many miles in NYC with improper footgear:

The girls are growing so, so much.  It is like time-lapse photography.  I swear they grow right before my eyes.  Tater, we believe, is turning into a young Jodie Foster:

And that sweet Dassa!  She turned eight!  Eight!  Just a couple weeks ago.  How time flies:

Pitter is blossoming as well.  If she would let me take a picture of her, I would show you how lovely she is.  Agility is still her *thing* – and she remains obsessed with dogs.  It's been two years, so I'm thinking Pitter has found her passion, yes?  Here she is with Zekie:

Alas, I have yet to get a clear picture of the two of them in class.  Perhaps when we move things outdoors…
In other news, Tater ran track this spring, shaving minutes off her time for the two-mile race:

Tater's *thing* continues to be karate.  She and Dassa both got to participate in the Demo Team for their Dojo this spring.  Dassa was a (nervous) last minute add on, and she rallied, with a smile on her face.  Here is a video of Tater the Ninja.  (Dassa is the sweetpea in the background with the orange belt.)

Good: A handyman brother-in-law who is working at our house right now!
Not-So-Good: A big 'ol laundry pile…and very little motivation to conquer it.  Sigh…
Silliness: The pictures I find on my camera after Pit~Pat has borrowed it:

  1. Thank you for calling by my blog. You do look very busy, I would love to visit NYC. I also have a not so good ironing pile here, and more wet washing, just hope the rain stays away so I can get it all dry .

  2. I love the way your girls have all found hobbies they really enjoy .
    Your trip , however exhausting , sounds such fun . Smitonius was there in April too for a few days . Maybe you even passed each other on the street ! Funny thought !
