Sydney and Austin are learning that if we do our daily and Saturday jobs, then we can play. Last Saturday I asked them to clean out their lockers in the mudroom, which meant taking everything out and wiping down the shelves and then putting their shoes, coats, backpacks, etc away in the locker in an organized manner. I explained the task and then left the room to take care of Camryn. When I walked by, this is what I saw...
And then I heard Sydney say to Austin, "Ok Austin, you have to take out all your shoes and line them up, then you can wipe your shelves and organize your stuff back in the locker! Got it?"
Austin's finished product!

Our little Austin never ceases to entertain us all! He has quite the sense of humor and makes us laugh daily! Here are some of his antics over the past month!
Take note of the sparkling princess Belle slippers; his older sister's influence. Hopefully, the alligator and dinosaur will neutralize the estrogen.
"Mom finally gave in and bought me a sword!"
So truth be told I avoided this day like the plague! I finally grew tired of my letter opener, vacuum attachments, empty paper towel rolls and other like items being used as swords. So thank you Brooke for the dollar store tip, Austin now has 2 swords to have those "friendly battles".

Dear Friends and Family-
If you think I have been completely out of touch, I have! We have not had a computer since the 8th of December. Just today I traded in my 5 year old dinosauer Dell desktop, for a new HP laptop.
Besides the obvious lack of blog updates, I could not access email (except work ones on my blackberry), retrieve my calendar, type my Christmas letter from my own computer, download pictures from camera, pay my bills on-line and the list goes on. I can honestly say I felt completely disconnected from the world. So for any of you who have thought I was exeptionally rude by not responding to emails, blog posts, or I forgot your special day, I sincerely apologize!
Thank goodness for a new year and a new computer!
