The many faces of Kaitlyn

Make a sad face.
Make a mad face.

Make a happy face.

My kids love this game. It's so fun seeing them make different faces to go with each emotion.
We have really been enjoying the warm weather, and have been doing lots of playing at the park and in the backyard, and lots of bike riding. Biniam just learned to ride a bike without training wheels (!), which brings us up to two official bike riders in the family (Yosef learned to ride last summer.)
And by "learned to ride", I mean they taught themselves.
Now we're working with Anna. (Who currently has her nose in a book. She is plowing through Roald Dahl's Matilda.)
I love summertime. I've got my three oldest signed up with Denver Public Library's reading program (in addition to one through Borders that Anna is participating in), we're looking forward to trips to the pool and free kids' movies at the theater (one or two a week!), and lots of Otterpops have already been consumed. Throw in weekly park trips with wonderful girlfriends, visits from loved ones from California, and it has the makings of a fabulous summer.

Update: Anna finished Matilda and is now already over 1/5th of the way through "James and the Giant Peach". Who IS this kid?!

I LOVE asking her for updates and hearing her tell me every last detail about the stories she's reading. I could not be any more proud of my girl!
