March 21 - 28

We have been trying to teach the girls delayed gratification a little more deliberately,having them earn almost anything they want, outside of food and clothes and things like that.  Every time we walked past the Moana movies at Costco, we talked about how they could work on earning one.  Until, finally, I just bought it for them as a treat.  Greg was in his last pushes of basketball season and I was tired of entertaining them every night by myself.  We made the Moana on the right by following a pattern found online, and Lynlee designed the Moana on the left by herself.

Posing for Lynlee one day after school.

Ellie and Lynnie were really excited to invite over their friends, who are also sisters, to a late over.  They made signs and spent at least an hour setting up the family room.

*my favorite part:  Little Girls Only*

They wanted to watch a movie right away (Moana, if I remember correctly).

Ellie had set up everyone with a sleeping/relaxing station as well as a sitting/reading station.  Rachel came later and I didn't get any pictures of her...  It was a fun night!

Sometimes basketball season is almost over and it feels like it has been going on forever.  So to distract yourselves, you go to the aquarium.  And you are lucky enough to see the penguins being fed.

The obligatory whale picture -- and miraculously, no one else is in the picture with us!

We always hit our favorite spots and then spend the rest of the time playing on the indoor playground.  Ellie needed a little snack.

Lynlee showed off a great pose.

And Cece was pouting for some reason, but I can't remember why.

It was a rainy day!

The big girls used their latest earnings to purchase these hatchable penguins.  The egg part was the most exciting.  The "growing penguin" was underwhelming.

Greg had a great time reading this book with a repetitive phrase (jump frog, jump) during Cece's parent-teacher conference.

Cece crashed hard on the way home. That time of day just means she will always fall asleep in the car.  It's awesome!

When Lynlee got home from school, she was very excited that her doll was finally ready.

 At Let's Play Music, Lynlee got to be Chief Do Is Home, and sing Do for her class.  She picked the correct pitch right out the air and did a great job.
