Monday, Perry and I hung out in bed and watched TV. She was being so silly and kept saying she wanted to go to California.
She went upstairs to see sisters and bumped her head on the stair railing on her way back down. Her sad face melts my heart.
She went on the potty and was back to her happy self when she got her gummy bears. She always says "I go potty get gummy bears!" followed by a squeal.
We sang songs in the car before school Tuesday morning.
The girls made some fun crafts on coffee filters and wanted to hang them all over the house.
Perry painted with bubbles, learned about the letter 'B', and learned about traffic symbols.
Wednesday after work, we headed up to the cabin for a super long weekend of relaxation.
The next morning, the girls got ready and we hung out in the front while waiting for horseback riding to open. We took the girls last summer while we were up here, and they could not wait to do it again.
The girls had their first day of school, and it went great.
Monday, we started the Keto diet. I don't like to call it that, because we aren't on a "diet". We are eating minimal carbs (under 20g per day) and high fat and are also mostly feeding our kids the same thing. Watch The Magic Pill on Netflix, and you'll get it. We're buying as organically and wholly as possible with the least amount of chemicals in our foods in an effort to keep our bodies healthy and our minds working at their best.
We started off by letting some pork cook in the slow cooker all day and made some zucchini noodles to go with it. It was delicious, and at least Perry couldn't get enough. Grace and Char fought us on the zucchini a bit, but they both ended up eating some in exchange for dessert (chocolate peanut butter balls that we homemade with no sugar and added MCT oil).
Perry insisted on wearing her lamb slippers to school on Tuesday, so I jus…
Picture of the Week: 'Field Trip Fridays' Takes Over City National Arena
Monday morning, we woke up to a gorgeous sunrise. The second best thing about monsoon season (the first is the random thunderstorms) is that we get these beautiful sunrises and sunsets with all of the humidity and clouds in the mornings and evenings.
Perry learned all about bears at school, and her teacher sent home the cutest picture of the kids wearing bear masks.
Tuesday, Perry was all about her pockets and asked me to take a picture with her hands in them.
We got an even better sunrise that morning than the previous day.
Grace had an orthodontist appointment where they decided to tie off her expander. We're all done with that part. Yay! Now she has to keep her braces on for about a year, kind of like a cast so everything heals properly. Perry was obsessed with their mirror and just looked at herself the whole time we were there.
When we got home, it started raining out of nowhere, so of course, t…
