Then we met the Girl Scouts at Build A Bear. I know this place is for children, but I love it when Evan wants to go. Evan decided she would make a bear for Sydney. She first chose one of the more expensive ones, but then I reminded her that Girl Scouts was paying for $25. If she got a less expensive bear, she'd have more money to spend on clothes. She did just that.
We had a great time at the BABW party and then stopped in at Gymboree. I saw the cutest dress there last week and have been thinking about it since then. So, Evan and Sydney now have matching dresses and necklaces.
We came home to start spring cleaning and do a little baking. I've accomlished so much today that I wish I had several more days just like it.
We took Chloe to Brownies Park with us, and she found a friend. The Maltese was about her age and had as much energy. They played for about 45 minutes straight without a break. The Maltese finally grabbed Chloe's tail and pulled her around for a while. Chloe slept very soundly that night. I now understand why it would be easier to have 2 dogs. Let's hope the same concept is true for 2 children.
Evan was given the 'Best Sport' award for always making everyone laugh. It's a good thing she's pretty good because her mouth always seems to be moving. She graduated from level 1 and will start on the Developmental Team this summer. She'll go 2 days a week for 1 1/2 hours each time. I'm really looking forward to her getting more real instructional time instead of some playtime.

Mike and I have been trying all weekend to record my video presentation and email it to my professor. Finally, all the stars aligned and we got it done. I took my final last Wednesday, submitted my presentation and powerpoint today and sent in my paper this afternoon. I am officially finished with this class. I can now concentrate on getting things ready to go to China. I also am going to try to do some Spring cleaning before we leave. I’ve only been doing the mandatory things the last few months because of my time-consuming class. This post is actually a test to see if I can figure out how to post via emails while we are in China. It looks like it works! Scratch that off my list!!!
