Ten on Tuesday.

1. The big girl riding her big girl bike.
2. Today, erasing all the ant hills in our driveway with her neighbor friend, Raj.
3. Trouble is, that makes for a sand-slippery driveway, and the little girl slipped a few times on her buns-huns.
4. Fisher gets to come outside, too, and sit in his stroller gazing at all the play he'll be able to do one day.
5. Raj drew a hopscotch game that was a tad too teensy, so I made a lifesized one. And forgot what the heck you do in this game anyway, with rocks that you throw and all? Luckily three, four and five-year-olds just make up their own rules anyway and tell you things like, "Hopscotch is just a contest kind of game." That was Carter, the five-year-old.


6. A little pool action on a warm Sunday.
7. This weekend she starts swimming lessons again!
8. Rediscovering Pepito whom she'd left in the garage. Now it's a real decision to make, to sleep with Pepito or Zebra. Tough choices on a three-year-old. 9. Apparently Pepito needs to be strolled. 10. Three months ago, I looked like this.Today, we look like this!

I'm amazed at all the things Alla can do. She's such a smart little thing!

And speaking of little things...WOW! (and I'm not talking about Fisher!)

Great 10. I can't get over those last two photos. They are the same but he's on the outside. Ok maybe he's a bit bigger now and you are a lot smaller! We saw a worm in our yard today and Jamie said, "I bet Alla would pick him up!" We just had to laugh.

Those last 2 photos are great! You are so clever (and looking pretty hot now!). I really wish I could spend a day (or a week) with you all. . . just to see Alla in real-time action. She is quite the little girl!
