This year Anderson brought home two monarch caterpillars. So we got to watch them turn into chrysalises and then beautiful butterflies. I think we'll do this every year. We were all astounded and it made for good family bonding time. I could tell you all sorts of things about Monarchs now that I didn't know before.

Anika is ten years old now. How did that happen?! She recently told me that she noticed some boy (I won't say who) is cute. I said, "Oh, how disgusting." I was just kidding, mostly. My stomach clenched just a little at the thought of my first baby starting to like boys. (Waah! I'm not ready! She's not ready! No, no, no, no. . .)

Rosalie has a wide range of expressions.
"Children are the reward."
(The quote comes from a lesson I heard in church years back. The woman was talking about how she kept wondering what blessing or reward she was getting for being a mom. Then one day she realized--children are the reward. She said it kind of like she wasn't sure that was the reward she wanted. Now when the kids do something frazzling, Casey and I turn to each other and say. . . But when you look at their funny little faces, you realize it really is the reward worth having.)
