Friday we spent in Maple Grove with the Lepiens. The first pic is Nora and Addie getting ready for the pool!!

Saturday morning we headed to Trout Lake Camp for the weekend! Addie was just about perfect all weekend ;) She loved driving "Papa's boat" and we had a very nice relaxing time with family.

Well, today was the last day! Bittersweet... that's what I'll call it. Now I'm relaxing with my hubby, watching So You Think You Can Dance, and NOT grading papers :)
Tomorrow we are hanging out with the Lepiens, and Saturday we head to Trout Lake Camp for the long weekend!!

Not too much going on... I only have four more days of school with kids and about a week and a half of teacher work days... then I'm done. So I'm a little anxious about that. I am looking forward to spending the summer with Addie, and of course awaiting the birth of baby boy, but I still am sad about being completely done with teaching.
On a completely different note, we are beginning to introduce potty training to Miss Addison. She enjoys sitting on the potty, which is a good thing! But she is a little confused about when you are supposed to sit on it. She poops in her diaper, then tells us she pooped, and then wants to sit on the toilet. It's a start, no doubt, but not exactly the right order! I haven't committed myself fully to this task, since I'm still teaching, but in about 2 1/2 weeks, we're going to do it!
Any of you out there have any suggestions or tricks for potty training??

We spent Mother's Day at Como Zoo with the Sorbel clan. Addie absolutely loved it! We had to visit the "kokies" (monkeys) twice- those were her favorite! You can bet we'll be going there a few times this summer!!

We had Ana and Adam over last night for dinner and cards. I finally got to see her preggo belly! It was a wonderful evening :-) So here we are... old roomies, now pregnant friends...and yes, she is 3 weeks ahead of me. Ha!

My students at school are reading Treasure Island right now, so I have a copy at home. This is what I found Addie doing yesterday morning... reading the 8th grade novel! So I followed her around with the camera and then put together a slide show of "motivation" for my 7th and 8th graders. I told them if my almost-two-year-old can read this book, so can all of you!!

Addie and I went with Amber, Liam, and Landon today to see "Thomas and Friends" LIVE at the Target Center. It was a blast! Addie couldn't get enough!! So fun!
