Babystitting to the extreme
Hi friends! My sister, Maris,a and her hubby Wayne are going to Hawa'ii in early February, and I volunteered to watch their two children, James (4, I think) and Katie (17ish months) for the week. Crazy of me? Perhaps. Jonas and I once watched another sister's children for a week while they went on a cruise, and let me tell you, I was ready for that week to end. The children were great and well-behaved, but we weren't in our own home and didn't have any kids of our own yet. It will be a little different this time around. James and Katie are coming up to Oregon, and now we have a baby just three months younger than Katie. I am really excited to see the two interact; should be good times. That's the latest thing in our life.
Besides that, Jonas has started school again and is really enjoying his property law class because his professor is very enthusiastic about her subject. Oh!!!!! And I am taking a modern dance class twice a week. It's on Mondays and Wednesdays from 12-1 (sad that it's only one hour, but at least it's something!), and I am so excited to get back into dancing. I think I will be disappointed with my lack of ability, but oh well. Work is busier that it used to be, and I'm grateful for that. Please enjoy the picture of Marisa and I as cute little chubby girls. Love that belly!
