projects are something that she does once or twice a month. her last one was compiling a memory box from the battle of bull run. as far as research goes, she does not enjoy it. i think she is easily overwhelmed by the amount of information on the internet and is still learning to navigate the waters on legit vs fictional sites. when it comes to the visual aspect of any project, she is all about it. she loved decorating the memory box the most. she loves art and anything creative. and in true caroline spirit, she let her little sister help her out. in the end, she made a 100 on the project. she is a great student for sure. very dedicated.
the girls just this week discovered we have a backyard. hey... where did that come from? neither of them have ever been big on playing out there. mainly because bugs live out there. did you know that? these girls are screamers and runners when it comes to seeing bugs of any kind. i guess now that the cooler weather is here and the bugs are fewer and farther between, the girls feel like it is safe to play outside. two nights this week they have played outside on the playground for like 45 minutes at least. that is a record for them. and the husband and i were in the house (we can see them from the window of course). pretty sure mazie had a great time outside too. though she was a little sad that she couldn't make it into the clubhouse with them.
hadley was lucky last night because i forgot her leotard at home. this meant she was able to get a real, non-target brand leotard at the gymnastics center she takes at. and i looooove it on her. the picture isn't great because she refused to pose for me so i just snapped this up while she and caroline played. the ponytail was the icing on the cake. she is growing up too fast. can't believe she is 4 1/2 already. and happily wearing a leotard.
