August

This month, Charlotte finished her ballet/tap lessons.  She loved them, and can't wait to take lessons again.  We're taking a break while she starts preschool next week.
Charlotte's other big news was her new bed.  She had definitely outgrown the toddler bed she was sleeping in, and I scoured Craigslist for just the right thing for her.  Unfortunately, as Craigslist often goes, I was usually too late, or had too little room in my car to get what I wanted.  But when Mom came to town, we were able to score this bed!  It was unfinished though, and we sanded and stained away in 100+ degree heat to make it worthy of her room.  We couldn't be happier with the result, and she loves it.
 While Mom was here we also went to the Dallas Children's Museum.  The girls loved the kitchen, water and sand areas.

 We also took advantage of the last days of the pool being open to take some early morning swims, which felt great.  Stay tuned for more project reports - the new patio cushions!

Adorable bed and bedding! You should have taken the before picture. Is it mean that I still have my 4 1/2 year old in a toddler bed? ;)
