We are back in California! We are so happy to be back. Life is easier and more fun when we are on vacation at our parents' house, but it is just so nice to have a routine. To illustrate Violet's feelings about being back:
Violet: (first thing this morning) Grandma? Grandpa??? GRANDMA? GRANDPA?!
Me: We came home to California! Where do Grandma and Grandpa live?
Me: Yeah! Where do we live?
Violet: With Hannah and Sofia!
Haha, so although Violet misses her grandparents, she is also happy to be near Hannah and Sofia again. We saw them at story time this morning, and she was delighted. We also saw Elmo. Can you believe I didn't take any pictures??
I have a few pictures left from our last week in AZ, and I meant to post them all today, but my flickr has run out of space for the month, so I will post them tomorrow when the new month starts. Here are the ones I did get to upload:
Gardening with Grandma
They dug up potatoes and we cooked them for lunch! Violet loved it.
I know it's hard to believe after looking at those pictures, but Violet did about ten times better this time than she did last year. She still cried right at the beginning, but then calmed down and answered Sister Hall's questions and did whatever she asked. She even jumped (got dropped) off the diving board once and made her way to the wall! It was a very stressful moment for Glenn and I to watch.
